Mismanagement of Immigration Process for Afghan Evacuees in the U.S. Leaves Evacuees Vulnerable, America at Risk

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.2 | Relevance 4.4

The Afghan crisis created by the Biden Administration has only begun. There are now over 100,000 evacuees yet to be resettled, many of which are Afghan interpreters or have otherwise supported U.S. military operations. While some evacuees have already applied for a Special Interest Visa (SIV), many currently have zero status and there remains wide mismanagement of the evacuees’ processing.  This raises serious questions about whether interpreters and other support are being properly protected from reprisal–as well as the serious risk of welcoming unscreened foreign nationals into the United States.
