National resettlement organizations to Biden: protect vulnerable Afghans

Washington, DC – Refugee Council members involved in direct support to refugee and displaced populations, including the national resettlement agencies, sent a letter to President Biden, impressing upon him the urgency needed to protect vulnerable Afghans. Organization executives emphasized that the US has the resources, systems, support, and will in place to effectively welcome those facing danger in Afghanistan, lacking only the support of the President.
