1,450 Afghan children without their families in US
CNN reports that over 1,000 Afghan children are in the US without their families and might not reunite with them.
Since August, over 1000 Afghan children were transferred to the US without their parents, and some of them may not reunite with their families, reported CNN.
In a report, the website showed that 1,450 Afghan children were taken to the US and after their arrival in the country, they were reunited with Afghan families who had preceded or accompanied them on their journey.
The children were separated from their families during chaos while trying to flee Afghanistan after the US withdrawal from the country, while others were separated during the bombing at Hamid Karzai International Airport, the website indicated.
CNN quoted sources as saying that it is still unclear how these children will be able to reunite with their families.
Sources told the website that "the procedures for reunifications with parents who remain in Afghanistan or other countries remain unclear."
Ashley Huebner, associate director of legal services at the National Immigrant Justice Center, expressed that "There's a lot of frustration...with the lack of information, the lack of movement, just the real lack of urgency that we're feeling from the Office of Refugee Resettlement and others about what is going to happen to these children, and why things are taking so long."
