Afghan Adjustment Act Gives Hope to Afghan Refugees

By August 19, 2022September 18th, 2022No Comments

The Afghan Adjustment Act has changed lives of thousands of Afghan refugees’ lives. Afghan evacuees fled Afghan after the Taliban takeover, and have been struggling to obtain permanent residency in the United States. This new act introduced last week has the potential to provide over 80,000 Afghans with the opportunity to become legal residents and seek asylum. These refugees currently obtain humanitarian parole status, but this Afghan Adjustment Act will permit them to gain permanent legal status while also allowing them to apply for citizenship down the line.

In addition to being able to apply for permanent legal status two years after their arrival with this new legislation, it also advanced the Special immigration Visa program to assist more Afghans with evacuating their home country. There are still countless Afghans who are at risk of oppression by the Taliban government, so they are working with the United States government to help them flee to this country to get permanent status. These individuals are subjected to persecution in Afghanistan, and the new Afghan Adjustment Act will provide them with the possibility of escaping the regime. Hundreds of thousands of Afghans are looking to this legislation with hopes of being eligible for permanent status.
