The United States is currently welcoming in 50,000 Afghans as Humanitarian Parolees. These individuals were our allies for the past 20 years and it’s our duty and pleasure to welcome them into America. The Federal Government provides very limited support ($1,075) to Parolees, so it’s up to the rest of us Every Day Americans to welcome in our allies. Scroll for 4 ways to help:
