“The catastrophic situation in Afghanistan right now is endangering the lives of brave Americans and Afghans who have worked together to defend the United States. Our country owes it to them to immediately get them out of danger as quickly and safely as possible.

Now, President Biden must ensure safety and security at the airport in Kabul and send all of the resources necessary for our military to safely complete its withdrawal from Afghanistan while leaving nothing behind that could eventually be used against innocent civilians.”

The whole situation is unsustainable and threatens our nation’s public safety, while also being unfair to hardworking people who legally come to the United States.
