The issue of keeping our promise to our Afghan allies is personal to me. My interpreter, Raqman, made the ultimate sacrifice on the day I was injured. I survived, he didn’t.
While Raqman cannot be here, two Afghan SIV recipients, Abdul Sami and Matiullah, join me to discuss the threats and perils Afghan linguist face and the difficulty of coming to the U.S. as Special Immigrant Visa recipients. Hear their moving story and help us get our Afghan’s allies to safety.
