Afghan Voices: I'm an Afghan who worked for the U.S.
The pullout of U.S. troops from Afghanistan left "tens of thousands of America's Afghan allies to face a future of uncertainty and danger," according to a Wall Street Journal article. Brishna Sadiqi, a senior coordinator who worked with the U.S. government for five years in Kabul, is one of those left behind. Sadiqi said she applied for the special immigrant visa, but it is still under review even though she submitted all documentation required and requested that the process of evacuation be expedited. "We women actually worked side by side with Americans. But still, we are left behind," she said.
