Adding their skills to the labor market would also be a net gain for the U.S. economy at a time when high-demand industries are in need of skilled labor. If professional Afghans newcomers living in the U.S. are able to find skill-aligned work, it would add nearly $650 million to the U.S. economy per year.”
