Afghan Asylum Seekers Face Hurdles Put In Place By The Trump Administration

 

The race to help allies in Afghanistan reach the United States has been stymied by the former administration’s restrictions on Americas’ asylum system. Krish O'Mara Vignarajah, CEO and President of the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, and Jina Krause-Vilmar, President and CEO of Upwardly Global, join American Voices with Alicia Menendez to discuss the system the Biden administration inherited, the dire situation Afghans waiting for Special Immigrant Visas are facing, and what needs to happen next to save U.S. allies still in Afghanistan. » Subscribe to MSNBC:

Afghan Asylum Seekers Face Hurdles Put In Place By The Trump Administration

  1. Largely still 80% of policies and legislation remains as it was in 2020. Only this administration’s mores and practices can implement the bare bones of the Trump/Taliban Treaty. Only the good will of NATO nations and Americans will make a difference. Let’s hope it lasting one!

    1. @Censorship Is real You could have the Genetically Enhanced Child of George Washington, General Patton & Serena Williams in the White House at the moment and this shitshow would be pretty much exactly the same. There was never going to be a right time & way to leave Afghanistan. Who the President is or was makes no difference since W Bush decided to barge in there & make Defence Contractors the richest people in America.

    2. Joe Biden gave our enemies all around the World a great and lasting victory when he unexpectedly and inexplicably removed our great soldiers from Afghanistan before taking out our U.S. citizens and allies, along with abandoning many billions of dollars of highest-grade Military equipment. Leaving our Military till the end was such a simple decision that anyone with intelligence and common sense would have made, but he called it wrong and instantly created perhaps the greatest embarrassment for our Country in its history—and it is far from over!

    3. @Tsubadai Khan how’s about after we get civilians and military equipment out then we completely pull out? That might of helped. Even a 10 year old can figure that out.

    4. @Tsubadai Khan you have very low expectations for Biden and America. Anti war doesn’t mean at least not keeping the Bagram air force base open to get people out. Those videos of children screaming “help us, the taliban is coming” is just sad, and it’s just disgusting.

    1. @OldAstronomer I can’t even quote Biden’s own words on this subject on YouTube. They’re apparently not appropriate… how about that.

    1. Joe Biden owns 100% of this , no one else should share his failure, I hope the ones that voted for the worst president ever in history of the united states of America , can’t sleep at night or day, your vote is just as bad of a delusional decisions of the democrat leader, destroyed all of Americans values , no credibility, no dignity left

    2. @Dave Gilles The only thing that the Biden administration can do is blame , no body can ever have any confidence in this administration, he should go and meet with the Clintons cleaner

  2. I just want to take a moment to congratulate and appreciate the wonderful diversity of the Biden team.
    Women, people of color, LGBTQ members, even a woman of ginger, all had a hand in this historic occasion.
    Not to mention the depth of compassion our first ethnic president and our current president from the geriatric community had for their hero Bowe Bergdahl. If it wasn’t for their forethought, I doubt the Taliban community organization would have such a wonderful leader as Khairullah Khairkhwa. Who else has such deep roots in western ways?
    Just goes to show how diversity is more important than merit.

    1. They’re not that Diverse.
      They don’t have a bald headed, Vampirish, Klan man like Stephen Miller in there…

  3. I don’t agree with what I’m about to say: no one cares what you say: you’re women! I disagree. But prove me wrong! Please?

  4. Get off the man’s nuts, he’s not even president. Biden just doesn’t want those people here. Lol

  5. This worldwide mega fiasco is OWNED by Joe “25th” Biden. His plummeting favorability numbers reflect the FACT the public blames him, not Trump! MSNBC can’t redirect the narrative, never-the-less will continue to gaslight their liberal .

  6. The Biden administration has been dragging it’s feet on Afghani visas for months, because they were already catching enormous heat for the hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants they were allowing into the country.

  7. Any media..mainstream..social .that doesn’t come clean…and stop covering for the entire party ..I just don’t know what to say.They all need to own a part of this….

  8. Wait until all the Americans that Biden left in Afghanistan finally get home …. the liberals might want to start packing now .

  9. Look It looks like Biden DOESNT want those people here??yes the ones that assisted the military but beyond that get in line??
