Take Action: Urge Congress to Swiftly Pass the Bipartisan Afghan Adjustment Act

Following the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, more than 75,000 at-risk Afghans were welcomed into the United States via “humanitarian parole,” a temporary immigration status typically only granted for 1 or 2 years to provide safety for people under threat. Given the temporary nature of parole, tens of thousands of the relocated Afghan men, women, and children resettled in the U.S. have been navigating complex legal issues to find lasting protection in the U.S.

On August 9th, we celebrated the bicameral introduction of the Afghan Adjustment Act, bipartisan legislation that provides a roadmap to permanent status for Afghans and ensures they can apply to become lawful permanent residents. Now is an important time to urge Members of Congress to swiftly pass this legislation in September when they return from the congressional recess period, so Afghans have a permanent path forward as they build lives in safety in the United States.

We also know that countless vulnerable Afghans were left behind, at risk of violence and persecution. The administration has a moral obligation to establish safe pathways out of Afghanistan, a process to equitably and efficiently welcome Afghans, who are still in Afghanistan or in other host countries, to the U.S., and expand and expedite access to life-saving refugee and SIV protections. Join us in urging Congress to take action!
