Oregon lawmakers respond to collapse of Afghanistan
"I’m extremely concerned about the dire situation in Afghanistan. It is alarming and disturbing that the Afghan forces didn’t put up a stronger defense, and I expect the Biden administration to provide additional answers in the coming days. We must do all we can to get Americans out of the country safely, along with Afghan people who assisted our troops or who are at risk because they advocated for or supported women’s rights. I have been contacted by constituents who have family or friends trying to get out of the country safely, and I share their concern and sense of urgency."
