USCRI – Webinar: Afghan Policy Update
August 3, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Policy and Legal staff at U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) will discuss 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 will discuss 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 will also discuss the status of other federal protections for Afghans, such as the new re-parole process for Afghans and Temporary Protected Status.
USCRI Policy Analyst Daniel Salazar and USCRI Legal Services Network Coordinator Jacob Mantey will serve as the webinar’s panelists. The panel will be moderated by AnnaMarie Bena, USCRI’s Senior Vice President.
