    With Honor Action Thanks the Senate for Supporting Our Afghan Allies

    With Honor Action Thanks the Senate for Supporting Our Afghan Allies

    With Honor Action applauds the passage of the State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs (SFOPS) bill, which includes key provisions of the Afghan Allies Protection Act, bipartisan legislation led by Senator Jeanne Shaheen and Senator Roger Wicker. The legislation has now passed through both chambers of Congress and been signed into law by the President.

    The bill will strengthen the Afghan Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) program by authorizing an additional 12,000 visas and extending the program through 2025. This is the largest increase in Afghan SIVs to date, and the much-needed extension will allow the State department more time to help resettle our Afghan allies.

    “Thank you to the leadership in the Senate for coming together over the weekend and passing this critical bill. This legislation will give thousands of our wartime Afghan allies the chance to build a new life in the United States,” said Rye Barcott, Co-Founder and CEO of With Honor Action. “But the work isn’t done yet. Many of our allies are still on the run from the Taliban in Afghanistan, and With Honor Action will continue to advocate for their safety and well-being. We thank lawmakers in both chambers of Congress for joining together in a bipartisan manner to finally pass this crucial legislation.”

    Supporting our Afghan allies has long been a top priority for With Honor Action. They fought with us through our nation’s longest war, and we promised them a new home in the United States. It’s past time we made good on that promise, and With Honor Action looks forward to continuing our work with Congress to support our Afghan allies.
