A 39-year-old man was painting walls last month in the Brooklyn high-rise where Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) lives. The house painter is from Guatemala, runs his own business and is raising three U.S. citizen children. But he’s undocumented.

Gov. Gavin Newsom said California will be “a place of refuge” for Afghans fleeing the Taliban, with the governor and legislative leaders announcing on Friday evening a $16.7-million proposal to provide cash assistance to refugees and a partnership with Airbnb to provide free, temporary housing for refugees settling in the state.

The hundreds of parishioners at Desert Springs Bible Church, a sprawling megachurch in the northern suburbs of Phoenix, are divided over mask mandates, the presidential election and what to do about migrants on the border. But they are unified on one issue: the need for the United States to take in thousands of Afghan evacuees, and they are passing the plate to make it happen.

When the Supreme Court effectively revived a cornerstone of Trump-era migration policy late last month, it looked like a major defeat for President Biden.

The Biden administration is debating restarting what it describes as a more humane version of a controversial Trump-era program for asylum seekers.

Tens of thousands of Afghans who helped American forces over the two-decades-long war are now arriving in the U.S. as refugees, following what, for many, has been a harrowing escape from the Taliban-controlled country as it erupts into more violence.

The rush to evacuate tens of thousands of people from Kabul has led to some Afghans arriving in the US who are only partway through their immigration process and others who have not yet applied to live in the US.

Texas v. Biden, a case with profound implications for American foreign policy, reached the Supreme Court with lightning speed.
