Governor Brown Says OR Ready To Welcome Afghan Refugees

(Salem, OR)  --  Governor Kate Brown says Oregon stands ready to take refugees from Afghanistan.  She's asking the Biden administration and Congress to lift admission caps on refugees so more families from Afghanistan can move to the U.S.  She says the lives of Afghan women, girls and translators are at risk if they stay.  Oregon has welcomed more than 75-thousand refugees since 1975.  Brown says Oregon will continue to be a welcoming and inclusive place for all who call the state home.
