The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced a new process on Thursday that will enable Afghan nationals to renew their parole and continue to live and work in the United States.
“The new process is streamlined and will be at no cost, and will provide for a two-year renewal of parole for qualifying individuals,” the DHS said in a statement.
