Immigration Nerds Talk about the Special Immigrant Visa and Afghanistan

In this week’s Immigration Nerds podcast, we talk to Noah Coburn, an anthropologist and professor at Bennington College and the author of “Bazaar Politics: Power and Pottery in an Afghan Market Town.” Professor Coburn focuses on political structures and violence in the Middle East and Central Asia.

In this conversation, we discuss the history and current state of the Special Immigrant Visa, how it pertains to Afghanistan, and the impact of the upcoming U.S. troop withdrawal.
