September 7, 2021

ALBUQUERQUE—This afternoon, U.S. Representative Melanie Stansbury (N.M.-01) visited families evacuated from Afghanistan at Holloman Air Force Base.

“I am proud that New Mexico and our Service men and women are continuing to play a critical role in evacuating and helping to resettle our Afghan allies. It was an honor to visit Holloman Air Force Base today to thank our service members for their tireless work and to meet some of the families who have already arrived in New Mexico,” said Rep. Stansbury. “New Mexico is proud to do our part and welcomes these Afghan families with open arms. I will be doing all I can to support this mission and those needing help and support as they are receiving vital services on their way to new lives in the United States.”

Stansbury toured the base to learn about the support that Task Force Holloman is providing to Afghan evacuees and how the federal government can best support the service members at Holloman and the needs of evacuees.
