Maharath Commends Biden Administration's Acceptance of Afghan Refugees
August 30, 2021

Today, state Senator and Minority Whip Tina Maharath (D-Canal Winchester) released the following statement in response to President Joe Biden’s efforts to resettle refugees from Afghanistan:

“Faced with an incredibly difficult situation, I am pleased with the Biden administration’s extraordinary efforts to evacuate thousands of refugees out of Afghanistan, as well as its efforts to resettle many of them in the United States. Our country has always served as a beacon of hope for those escaping persecution in their native lands, and it continues to do so under this administration. Refugees belong here, and they are valuable contributors to our culture and our economy. I would like to welcome our new Afghan neighbors to America, and applaud the efforts of the Biden administration in getting them here.”
