Afghan refugees who managed to escape to the U.S. face the real prospect they may be shipped back to live under the Taliban’s thumb. The Afghan Adjustment Act, a bill to extend their stay in the U.S., is stalled in Congress. If it fails, almost 80,000 Afghan evacuees risk their freedom and their lives. Krish Vignarajah is a refugee herself and runs the Lutheran Immigration & Refugee Service.
