Helping Afzal Afzali, Afghan translator

Casework Success Stories

Afzal is an Afghan translator who bravely worked with the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, helping our mission in Afghanistan. As his life was in danger due to his work with the U.S. after the Taliban took over the Afghan government, it was imperative that he and his family evacuate. That’s when Afzal’s brother turned to Rep. Allred.

Rep. Allred worked with the State Department to ensure that Afzal, his family, and four other children travelling with him were safely evacuated. Thanks to Afzal, the four children have been reunited with their mother in New York, and Afzal and his family now live in Dallas with Afzal’s brother. Thanks to Afzal’s courage, the work of Rep. Allred, and the help of the State Department, two families have been safely relocated to the U.S. You can read more about his story in the Dallas Morning News.

Rep. Allred’s office is continuing to work with the State Department to help with evacuations. Call 972-972-7949 if you know Afghans currently at risk and in need of evacuation.
