To be able to process and resettle 125,000 total refugees in this new and upcoming year is gran task for the Biden administration to handle and hope that with the aid from its resettlement agencies and organizations, it would help better integrate the lives of those who are entering the United States.
Due to the Trump administration cutting programs and costs, there have been many agencies closing and scaling back. In the notice sent by Congress, the current administration aims to pursue funding initiatives to provide the funding needed for many of these resettlement organizations and agencies as well as accommodating the refugees that have arrived since the start of the year.
As for the current situations with the Afghan refugees and Afghanistan, the Biden administration seeks to find the Afghan refugees parole and other methods of entering the United States and seeking better immigration status.
With efforts to rebuild the current programs as the Biden administration truffles to help with the resettlement efforts for many Afghans, there are close to 60,000 Afghans that are undergoing both vaccinations and their processing for refugee status across the United States. For those who have been living in the U.S. since the summer, they have been granted parole due to the fact that they do not possess approved visas.
Though some have their applications pending, there are plenty of other Afghans that are entering the United States via parole who do not have such structured and more permanent ways to to obtain residency, which is something they still receive even after settling into the United States for more than a year.
