Washington, D.C. — A bipartisan group of lawmakers has reintroduced the Afghan Adjustment Act.
The much-needed legislation would provide a clear path to long-term safety and stability for Afghan allies already in the United States, many of whom are currently stuck in legal limbo even as they try to build a life here. It would also improve upon our ongoing efforts to protect Afghan allies who are still outside the U.S.
“We’re a step closer to bolstering our national security and providing a stable and hopeful future for our Afghan allies,” said Jennie Murray, President and CEO of the National Immigration Forum. “The reintroduction of the Afghan Adjustment Act reflects Americans’ enduring support and welcome for Afghans who risked their lives to support the United States.
“We’re glad Republicans and Democrats are working together on this effort. The Afghan Adjustment Act not only offers a lifeline to those who have stood by our side but also strengthens America’s leadership in the world. To ensure a future with certainty for our Afghan allies, Congress must move quickly to pass it.”
