A number of members of the US Senate called for the permanent residence of Afghan refugees

Some members of the US Senate demanded the approval of an amendment based on which the permanent residence of Afghan refugees in this country will be provided. CNN reported that this amendment opens the way for permanent residence of Afghans who were evacuated during the US withdrawal from Afghanistan. The amendment, introduced by Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar and Republican Senator Jerry Moran, would allow former US partners in Afghanistan who have already entered the United States to apply for permanent residency. Republican Senators Roger Wicker, Lindsey Graham and Tom Tillis, as well as Democratic Senators Richard Blumenthal, Chris Coons and Jane Shaheen are among the supporters of this amendment. While presenting this amendment, Klobuchar said that currently, about 80,000 Afghan refugees who were former colleagues of American soldiers in Afghanistan are living in the United States. It is not yet clear whether this amendment will be approved by the US Senate or not.
