USCRI Webinar: Afghan Policy Update

By USCRI August 4, 2023

On August 3, U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) Policy and Legal staff discussed the latest legislative and executive efforts to extend legal protections to Afghan parolees, who arrived in the United States nearly two years ago amid the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.

The panelists discussed the most recent developments on the Afghan Adjustment Act (AAA), the bipartisan proposal in Congress to provide this population a pathway to lawful permanent resident status. They also discussed the status of other federal protections for Afghans, such as the continuation of resettlement benefits during the new re-parole process for Afghans and Temporary Protected Status.

USCRI Policy Analyst Daniel Salazar and USCRI Legal Services Network Coordinator Jacob Mantey were the webinar’s panelists. The panel was moderated by AnnaMarie Bena, USCRI’s Senior Vice President.
