Campaigns for Iraqi and Afghan Interpreters

Veterans and their supporters are launching Change.org petitions in support of visa requests for the interpreters who have helped US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Through visa programs established by two different pieces of legislation, interpreters who worked with US troops in both countries -- and whose lives are threatened as a result of their work for foreign troops -- are eligible for visas to the US to escape to safety.
