US veterans hope more Afghans at risk can leave

U.S. veterans groups are hopeful that private evacuation flights starting up again for Western citizens in Kabul means Afghans considered at risk for past work with Americans will soon be able to leave again as well. Republican and Democratic lawmakers, veterans groups and others have been pressing the Biden administration to do more to get out those vulnerable Afghans. They include thousands of Afghans who once worked with the U.S. military, and are eligible for what are known as Special Immigrant Visas.
