What’s Missing From Joe Biden’s Voting-Rights Defense

  What’s Missing From Joe Biden’s Voting-Rights Defense The president’s speech about the sanctity of the vote did not go far enough.Nowhere in his remarks did Biden utter what may go down as the political word of the year. The Senate procedure known as the filibuster now stands as the insuperable obstacle to the new federal voting-rights legislation that represents Democrats’ best chance to counter the restrictive voting laws proliferating in red states.

The emergency aids should also be used for immigration visas from Afghanen, who have worked for the US government. On this month, the first could come to the USA.

US President Joe Biden has granted up to $ 100 million of aid from an emergency fund for Afghan refugees. The money coming from an Emergency Fund should be used to fulfill "unexpectedly urgent needs" of people who are endangered because of the situation in the country, it was said in a message from the White House.

The emergency aids should also be used for Afghan applicants from special visa applications. Thousands of Afghans who have previously worked as a translator or other jobs for the US government have been fearing the Taliban's retaliation measures since the deduction of American troops. You may now enter the US with the help of special immigration visa (SIVS).

From now on, George W. Bush regrets the withdrawal of the military at the end of the longest war in the history of the country.

It is expected that the first group of Afghanen and its families will be flown before the end of the month to Fort Lee, a US military base in Virginia, where they will wait for the final processing of their visa applications. The US government currently examines other institutions in the United States and overseas in which SIV applicants could be accommodated.

18 000 Visa Applications

On Thursday, the US Representative House adopted a law that increases the number of SIVs to be forgiven by 8000, which would cover all potentially eligible applications. Overall, according to the US government, there are currently about 18 000 such visa applications in progress.

despite the advance of the Taliban, Biden had announced that the Afghanistan commitment will end on the 31st of August - after almost 20 years. Then only US soldiers should remain in the protection of the embassy in Afghanistan. According to those skilled in the art, the helpers threatened after the troops of the troops the revenge of militant-Islamist Taliban.
