A Statement From the ED: CLINIC Urges Protection and Welcome for Afghan Allies

The following is a statement from CLINIC Executive Director Anna Gallagher:

"The United States has a moral obligation to protect and welcome the Afghan men, women and their families who worked with, supported and cared for our military service personnel during the last two decades. They have risked their lives for us, and we must now make every effort to protect theirs.

All politics must remain out of this decision. These are our brothers and sisters, and we must receive them with great dignity and respect given all their sacrifices on our behalf and the grave danger that they and their children face. No one can be left behind. Otherwise, we have failed in our mission."
