Welcoming Afghan Evacuees to Minnesota

Since mid-2021, over 74,000 Afghans have been evacuated to the United States through the federal Operation Allies Welcome program. Many of these individuals worked alongside U.S. personnel in Afghanistan for the past two decades. As these Afghan evacuees begin to resettle in our state, they represent our newest and most vulnerable Asian Pacific Minnesotans.
