According to local media reports, the Biden administration is planning a resettlement program to resettle 55,600 Afghans who have been rescued from US military bases.
The relocation of so many Afghans from military bases is the largest resettlement program since the 1980s, according to the Khama Press. Currently, many pro-US Afghans in Afghanistan are living in refugee camps set up at US military bases.
US President Joe Biden has decided to launch a program to allow Afghan sisters and others with permanent residency. Its purpose is to help Afghans start a new life in the United States by providing financial assistance or resettlement in their settlements and cities.
Under the new initiative, a group of five people over the age of 18 can apply for Afghan family sponsors who will provide financial support to the Afghan family for 90 days, complete their training and develop a family plan.
According to Khama Press, if the proposal is approved, the group will take on the responsibility of assisting refugees in obtaining housing, receiving benefits available through the US government, such as medical care and other responsibilities, as well as enrolling children in schools.
