Sample Call Script:
Hello, my name is [name]. I’m a voter and a constituent of [Rep. Garamendi/Rep. Matsui/Sen. Feinstein/Sen. Padilla]. My zip code is [zip code].
I’m calling to urge you to support vulnerable Afghans seeking refuge in the U.S.
USCIS has received over 30,000 Humanitarian Parole applications from Afghans but hasn’t approved any since August. We must create a special parole program for Afghans to make it to the U.S., but until then, the U.S. owes refuge to Afghans facing a crisis as a result of decades of U.S. foreign policy decisions.
The U.S. must work quickly to create a pathway to safe passage for Afghans and USCIS must not hold these Afghan Humanitarian Parole applications to standards that are impossible to meet. Afghans have families and communities in the U.S. ready to receive them, and Congress has already authorized refugee benefits for Afghan parolees. Lives are at risk and immediate action is necessary!
