Dear ___________

In the aftermath of our 20-year conflict in Afghanistan, the United States has withdrawn military forces; but there are still many people left behind who risked their lives and the lives of their families to assist our armed forces in the fight against international terrorism.

The people who provided us vital assistance are now refugees and in harm’s way. Many are now in hiding attempting to evade Taliban forces. Many face a certain death.

There are things within our power as a nation that can be done to help these people reach safety.

  1. We want the US government to use its mighty influence in the world to pressure the countries bordering Afghanistan to admit and protect our refugees.
  1. We want our embassies in those countries to give the highest priority to processing Special Immigrant Visas (SIV) as well as P1 and P2 refugees from Afghanistan.
  1. We want to assure those bordering countries that we will process SIVs, P1, and P2 packets as quickly as possible so the refugee camps are a temporary measure and will not become a permanent burden.

This is a humanitarian crisis. We have a moral obligation to help those who have helped us. Please assure me that you will do everything within your power to engage in this humanitarian effort.

Most sincerely,
