White House asks Congress to give Afghans permanent US residence after one year


The White House is reportedly asking Congress to provide a quick pathway to permanent residency in the United States for tens of thousands of Afghans who are ineligible for visas after being evacuated and brought to the U.S. by the Biden administration this summer.

As part of a $6.4 billion emergency funding request that President Joe Biden sent Congress earlier this week, the administration wants lawmakers to include language that would allow an unspecified number of Afghan citizens the ability to apply after one year for a green card, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday evening.

Green card holders may permanently reside in the country. All green card holders can apply to become U.S. citizens after a certain number of years.
