Congress Must Pass The Afghan Adjustment Act
The Afghan Adjustment Act will be the most important piece of Congressional legislation to pass the chambers of Congress for the Afghan community in decades. Here is why:
As the United States withdrew from Afghanistan, almost 80,000 Afghans were evacuated to the United States in a chaotic withdrawal that left many behind. Many of those now in the United States will only have temporary legal status as they start a new chapter of their life every state and corner of this country.
The Afghan Adjustment Act will allow Afghans in the United States to access permanent legal status, after months of living in limbo. If Congress fails, countless Afghans will be forced through other burdensome legal and backlogged asylum processes.
We need your help to urge every Congressperson and Senator to pass the Afghan Adjustment Act, which was introduced in both the Senate and the House of Representatives on August 9th.
