White House Authorizes $500M More For Afghan Refugees

The White House has authorized another $500 million to help relocate Afghan refugees.

President Biden approved the money late Monday, to assist "refugees, victims of conflict, and other persons at risk as a result of the situation in Afghanistan."

“Such assistance may be provided on a bilateral or multilateral basis as appropriate, including through contributions to international organizations and through funding to other nongovernmental organizations, governments, and United States departments and agencies,” Biden wrote in a memo on Monday.

The U.S. had previously announced plans to help 80,000 Afghan civilians who are at risk of retaliation from the Taliban.
