AOC calls for at least 200k VISAs for Afghan Refugees, calls for Biden to increase cap

Progressive Democrat AOC called for at least 200k VISAs for Afghan refugees.

“I believe we need to move, and the administration needs to move as quickly as possible and as expansively as possible, ensuring that we are raising the amount of refugee visas to whatever amount is necessary,” ACO said.

“I would say the rock bottom is 200,000, but I think it should be whatever is necessary … And that needs to be expedited as soon as possible,” she added.

Rep. Barbara Lee tweeted Thursday “As the people of Afghanistan face a humanitarian crisis, we must open our doors to refugees fleeing the consequences of a 40-year U.S.-fueled war. Today, @RepAOC and I called on @POTUS to increase the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program cap.”
