Afghan Immigrants in the United States

Jeanne Batlova for Migration Policy Institute in Afghan Immigrants in the United States includes information on Afghan immigrants in the U.S.  "The dramatic evacuation from Afghanistan may bring more than 50,000 new Afghan immigrants to the United States, according to government predictions. These new arrivals would join a small but growing population of Afghans in the United States, most of whom have arrived since 2010. This article provides insights into this immigrant group, many of whom arrived on the Special Immigrant Visa."
