Tell President Biden: Evacuate Afghan interpreters in a safe and timely manner
Thousands of Afghan interpreters worked alongside American troops day in and day out for years, and as a result, live in danger of retribution by the Taliban.
Afghan interpreters who have served two or more years with the U.S. military are eligible for Special Immigrant Visas to come to the U.S. But currently, there is a backlog of over 18,000 applicants and the process can take years, leaving interpreters in serious danger while they wait.
Why is this important?
Afghan interpreters who put their lives and families at risk deserve protection by the U.S.
The U.S. has a moral obligation to act — from speeding up the visa application process and increasing the number of visas available to directly evacuating interpreters. And as veterans, active duty servicemembers, military family members, and civilian supporters, it's our duty to speak up and demand action from the Biden Administration.
Will you add your name and tell President Biden not to leave Afghan interpreters behind? >>
