ON AFGHANISTAN, ON MIGRATION | Afghan Allies Still Need America’s Help – The Wall Street Journal, Editorial Board

Thousands who escaped to the U.S. are stuck in immigration limbo.

As the Taliban regime retook the country, more than 79,000 Afghans were evacuated to the U.S. When [their] humanitarian parole expires, these Afghans can’t legally stay in the U.S., and the risk of deportation looms.

The solution is a bill called the Afghan Adjustment Act, which would provide a path to a green card for those currently on humanitarian parole. A fix is on Congress’s agenda, but time is running out.

The U.S. has a moral obligation to do what it can to mitigate the harm of Mr. Biden’s catastrophic withdrawal, and passing the Afghan Adjustment Act would be a good start.
