Int’l Christian Concern seeking special status for Afghan immigrants
The Taliban announced victory over the last resistance group in Afghanistan’s Panjshir Valley on Monday.
Christians will likely face increased persecution under the new regime. Jeff King with International Christian Concern said that multiple groups are working with the U.S. government to get a special immigration status for Christians.
KING: “We’re trying to get a special status set up for Christians because part of the problem is the machinery of government and what do you do with immigrants? So we need a special status so that the government says ‘Hey, these guys are at risk,’ and you move them through the immigration process quickly as a special status. Please pray for that as we work on that.”
