What you can say when you call
Hi, my name is [YOUR NAME], I am one of the [REPRESENTATIVE’S/SENATOR’S] constituents living in [YOUR CITY/TOWN, STATE]. I ask that the [REPRESENTATIVE/SENATOR] advocate for concrete actions to support the Afghan people. These include:
Prioritize Emergency Evacuations for Afghans: The U.S. must secure the Karzai International Airport in Kabul and supply additional government-run evacuation flights for Afghans.
Expand and Expedite Processing P-1/P-2/Special Immigrant Visas: The U.S. must broaden eligibility and remove unnecessary barriers to meet strict requirements for P1, P2, and SIVs that significantly delay the approval process, and increase processing capacity.
Deliver Immediate Humanitarian Assistance: The U.S. must immediately provide urgent humanitarian assistance to vulnerable communities in Afghanistan, including internally displaced persons (IDPs), women-focused non-governmental organizations (NGOs), persecuted ethnic and religious groups targeted by the Taliban, and others.
Welcome Afghan Refugees: The U.S. must increase the annual refugee allocation by 100,000 and reassess based on need. In parallel, the U.S. must instate the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for all Afghan refugees.
