After fleeing Taliban, Afghan soldier seeks asylum at US-Mexico border

Abdul Wasi Safi fled Afghanistan, fearing retribution from the Taliban following the August 2021 American withdrawal, but he kept documents detailing his time as an Afghan soldier who worked with the US military.

After making a long journey from Brazil to the US-Mexico border, he hoped the paperwork would secure his asylum in the US.

But after crossing the US-Mexico border near Eagle Pass, Texas in September, Safi was arrested on a federal immigration charge and remains jailed at a detention center in Eden, Texas, fearing his asylum claim may be denied.
