Afghan Refugee Details Falling Through The Cracks Of An Overstretched System - Nightly News Films.

When the Taliban took control of Afghanistan last August, women’s rights activist Roshan Mashal left her life behind to find safety with her husband and five children. They were among the 76,000 Afghan refugees who fled to the U.S. When they arrived, they encountered a number of hurdles. Mashal requested to be settled in D.C. to continue her advocacy work. She was instead sent to Texas without three of her young adult children, though they were later reunited. Her caseworker was overwhelmed with too many people to help, she says. Mashal is not alone in her challenging situation. She worries for other refugees who are less well-connected and may need more support. She urges the U.S. to streamline its asylum process and invest more in resettlement services.
