The Biden administration’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan has resulted in tens of thousands of Afghan allies being left behind, despite promises to resettle them safely in the United States. A report from the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) reveals that bureaucratic dysfunction and understaffing are undermining efforts to keep America’s commitment to its allies.
Republicans are holding the administration accountable for this humanitarian crisis, and Congress must provide meaningful oversight to prevent it from worsening. The U.S. has a moral obligation to keep its promises and ensure the safety of these brave individuals.
The Biden administration must take responsibility for its failure and act immediately to rescue and resettle Afghan allies left behind. It’s time for the government to balance the expedited processing of refugees with vetting for national security threats. The lives of these individuals are at stake, and the U.S. must honor its commitment to them.
