Afghan Refugees Headed To Missouri

Jefferson City

(Jefferson City) The U-S State Department is reporting that Missouri is expected to receive 12 hundred Afghanistan evacuees from the first group arriving in the country.

Thirty-seven thousand evacuees are going to be resettled around the country.

They fled from their homes in Afghanistan when the U-S decided to withdraw its troops last month while ending the long war.

The Biden administration has reportedly asked Congress for funding to pay for the resettlement of 65 thousand Afghans by the end of September and 95 thousand by this month next year.
