A new poll found that a huge majority of the United States people in both parties back the decision of the government to take in Afghans who helped the American military at the time of war in Afghanistan, and above six Republican governors show their support for Afghan migrants.
On Sunday, a CBS News poll found that eighty-one percent of the 2,142 American adults surveyed described that America should assist those Afghanistan’s people who come to the United States; only nineteen percent described they shouldn’t.
Helping Afghans by taking in the U.S., who operated as intelligence sources, drivers, translators, and in several other helping roles, has acquired support from ninety percent of Democrats, seventy-nine percent of Donald Trump, and independent voters, and seventy-six percent of Republicans in the poll.
As many Afghan people who have registered themselves for American visas remain stuck in Afghanistan, around fifty-nine percent of respondents explained that America isn’t doing enough to back them, just fourteen percent described that America is doing too much for them, and twenty-seven percent said that it is doing the right amount.
Republican lawmakers support taking in Afghans
Most of the Republican democrats have shown their support for immediately withdrawing Afghan people, as has Donald Trump (former American President), regardless of his tough rules for immigration, while around 9 Republican governors have promised to resettle them in their states.
On Saturday, during a briefing, Major General Hank Taylor described that around twenty-two thousand Afghan people have been withdrawing by the American military since late July. He continued that security checking an screening is going to be mandatory before they are permitted to step into the U.S. Moreover, security checks have thus far been performed in 3rd countries such as Kuwait and Qatar, although the military supposedly decides to use several bases in America to screen Afghan people as well.
Last week, during an interview with ABC News, President Joe Biden gave an estimated range (fifty to sixty-five thousand) Afghans the United States is planning to take in. According to the advocacy group Association of Wartime Allies, as many as eighty-eight thousand Afghan people have registered for a special immigrant visa. Besides this, some of the groups have expressed to take in hundreds of thousands of Afghans.
