What happened to the Afghan interpreters?
The quick exit from Afghanistan over a year ago has left many people in danger under Taliban rule. Disqualified Afghan Interpreters were denied visas even though they had positive reviews from their military supervisors. Many of the denials came after the interpreters were terminated by the private contracting companies that hired them. They have explained that the smallest inconsistency can result in a denial.
The U.S. exit left thousands of Afghans in danger who are ineligible for visas despite having aided the United States. Hundreds of Afghans who assisted the US military with interpreting have found themselves abandoned.
