Waltz Statement on Biden Administration’s Afghan SIV Announcement

WASHINGTON, D.C. –  On Wednesday, U.S. Congressman Mike Waltz (FL-6) released the following statement regarding the Biden Administration’s Afghan SIV announcement:

“Today’s announcement by the Biden Administration to evacuate our Afghan interpreters and SIV applicants is belated but welcomed news,” said Rep. Waltz. “I hope to see more details on the number of those being evacuated, how they are being prioritized, how the United States is helping them safely travel to evacuation sites given the Taliban’s gains, and an expedited timetable. We must also prioritize helping those in Afghan civil society, especially women, who may be outside of the SIV requirements but that the Taliban will continue to target.”
