Spartz Sends Third Letter to President Biden Requesting Assistance in Afghanistan

October 1, 2021

WASHINGTON – Today, Congresswoman Victoria Spartz (R-Ind.) sent a third letter to President Biden requesting assistance from the Administration with efforts to evacuate a couple in contact with her office. The Congresswoman has yet to receive a response to her first two inquiries. 

Read the text of the third letter below:

"President Biden, 

My office still has not received any response from your office or the Department of State to my August 31 or September 24 letters requesting urgent assistance with the evacuation of a U.S. Citizen and an approved I-130 (immigrant visa) petition holder from Afghanistan (see documents attached). 

We have received another concerning e-mail that no one from your team has been in contact with this couple for some time. Please advise if your administration is planning to help these individuals or if our office needs to look for some other means to assist them. 

Sincerely, 

Victoria Spartz Member of Congress 

cc: The Honorable Antony Blinken, U.S. Secretary of State"
