After two decades of fighting, US troops are hurriedly withdrawing from Afghanistan. With this, hundreds of translators and other Afghans who assisted the US and government forces in return for visas to the US are in a race against the clock and a fight against bureaucratic red tape. The issue of special visas for these Afghans has ignited a big political squabble in the United States. Many politicians and veterans in the United States are concerned that there will not be sufficient time to process all of the requests. Suppose the administration is unable to resolve the paperwork delays. In that case, lawmakers claim that translators and their families should be evacuated to Kabul, or even third countries or other American military bases, as they await visas.
