A State Department official said the funds will be used to help Afghans fleeing the Taliban resettle in the US over the next few months. Evacuees may also be given access to federal benefits such as Medicaid, the official said. DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said Friday the US will take in around 50,000 Afghan evacuees. Many people still in Afghanistan are living in fear for their lives under the Taliban rule as militants are said to be hunting for Western allies following the US withdrawal (inset Joe Biden).
