Addressed to President Biden, Secretary of State Blinken, and Secretary of Homeland Security Mayorkas, it seeks immediate action in enabling the safe and speedy relocation of Afghanistan’s students and scholars to the United States. Due to shortcomings in existing visa requirements, it calls on the government to create a dedicated visa category for Afghan scholars and students to allow for travel.
