US House of Representatives wants to approve $ 6.3bn in emergency aid to help relocate Afghan refugees in the United States rescue work from Kabul last month.
The bill is part of a total of $ 28.6bn, as well as a setback that is expected to be released into the House on Tuesday night – but could face a major challenge in the US Senate.
“The funding will ensure that government agencies involved in the relocation process have the potential to help Afghan counterparts secure new lives in the United States,” said Representative Deborah Ross, House of Democrats.

Parliament is launching new demands for Afghans who have fled the Taliban since July, and wants US officials to ask for refugee questions within 45 days from their request to flee their homes and hold a final decision within 150 days.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is also urged to report to Congress on quarterly cases and the number of those fleeing Afghanistan from the US and US military bases, according to the law.
