With the eyes of the world on Afghanistan, we can’t help but feel sorrow for the thousands of refugees fleeing the only home they have ever known. According to the Biden administration, the United States is expected to resettle around 125,000 Afghan refugees, with just over 30,000 already on American soil. Thousands of these refugees plan to relocate in cities like Dallas, Houston, Austin, El Paso, and San Antonio. According to several Texas House and Senate members, Texas is prepared to take as many as 10,000 Afghan refugees in the coming months.
