The first batch of Afghan interpreters and their families will be accommodated at Fort Lee, a military installation in Virginia. Approximately 2,500 Afghans are likely to be housed at Fort Lee, according to State Department spokesperson Ned Price. It is not certain yet when they will arrive in the US, though. Fort Lee did not reply to demands for a response right away. Around 18,000 Afghans who served for the US government have filed for Special Immigrant Visas, but the process can take years, and candidates can be disqualified for minor mistakes.
