Urge the Biden Administration to Protect Afghans Who Have Been Left Behind
The United States has a long history of protecting and welcoming the world’s most vulnerable on our shores—but that legacy is at risk. Following the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, attacks against Afghan nationals who remain in-country and aided the U.S. mission are rising. The evacuation efforts brought some to safety, but additional action must be taken now to ensure all who have been waiting for years to relocate to the United States and those who seek protection from new waves of violence by the Taliban are able to find safety within our borders. 

In the last two weeks of August, the United States evacuated more than 31,000 people from Afghanistan, and the entire operation led to the evacuation of more than 100,000. Despite these efforts, tens of thousands of our Afghan allies have been left behind. We urge the Biden Administration to continue to protect those at risk, including translators, human rights activists, journalists, LGBTQIA+ people, and religious and minority groups.

To that end, LIRS and our partners in the Evacuate Our Allies coalition remain steadfast in our commitment to welcome our newly arrived neighbors and call upon the Biden administration to create new pathways of protection and provide a robust humanitarian response for the Afghan people who have been left behind.

Join us and send a message to President Biden today! Urge the Administration to provide urgent humanitarian protections, including re-opening consular services, creating a pathway forward for Afghan allies currently in third countries, and establishing protections for the vulnerable women and children still in Afghanistan.
