The Afghans are coming into the U.S. in the wake of the U.S. アフガニスタンからの撤退, which sparked an exodus of Afghans from Kabul as they fled the Taliban. Officials have said those coming in are made up of those who worked directly with the U.S. mission as well with thousands of others deemedat risk.

カリフォルニア (5,255) and Texas (4,481) will receive the largest numbers of the first wave, while smaller populated states like Oklahoma and Missouri will receive 1,800 そして 1,200 それぞれ. ミシガン, Florida and Georgia will both receive more than 1,000 Afghans each. New York will receive 1,143 and Arizona will receive 1,610.

しかしながら, Washington D.C., along with Hawaii, サウス・ダコタ, West Virginia and Wyoming, will not receive any refugees in the initial wave.

An administration official told Fox News that the State Department works with nine resettlement agencies and 200 affiliates across the country – in addition to State Refugee Coordinators – to assess state capacity. The organizations identify communities where Afghans can move to, and the government also works with the Afghans themselves to work out where they may already have family members living in the U.S. or where there are already established Afghan-American communities.

It is the first wave of what ホワイトハウス officials have said will be 95,000 refugees in the first fiscal year. The intention is to bring in 65,000 immediately and another 30,000 over the next year, officials told reporters on a recent call. It has also made a $ 6.4 billion request for funding related to resettlement, and the ability to give green cards to those paroled.

しかしながら, conservatives have raised concerns both about vetting and about the fact that the Biden continuing resolution request could allow those refugees to bring in family members, and could also be extended for years to come – meaning the number could inflate significantly.

The administration has stressed that vetting includes screening by intelligence, 法執行機関, and counterterrorism professionals and reviews of biographic and biometric data. DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has described the process asmulti-layered.

An internal government document viewed by Fox News on Friday said that as of Sept. 8, DHS had granted parole to more than 46,000 refugees andanticipates processing tens of thousands morein the coming months.
