New Immigrants and Refugee Visions-at-home
Watch Refugees in America: Three films by and about refugees

With our New Immigrant and Refugee Visions (NIRV) themes campaign you can watch and discuss a selection of the NIRV films with your home-bound and online family and friends each week. Our hope is that you can use this time together at home to watch and discuss the films and deepen your understanding of immigration issues. 
Go to the NIRV Refugees in America theme page for this week’s films, discussion questions and additional resources.

Please add your thoughts and tell us about your experience in the comments section at the bottom of the themes page.

After Afghanistan fell to the Taliban tens of thousands of Afghans made their way to the United States. They were allowed to stay under a program called “humanitarian parole.” But that status expires in a couple of months, and although they can renew one time, many are calling for Congress to pass the Afghan Adjustment Act, which would allow them to seek more permanent status.
