Realities Faced by Afghan Immigrants – featuring Award Winning Political Journalists – Episode 167
As global immigration attorneys, we are constantly tracking the latest shifts in human migration patterns. One trend we’ve noticed over the past few years is the rise of Afghanistan as a Citizenship By Investment market. Mona and Rebecca explored this lead and uncovered a hidden world of abuse, torture, and mistreatment of Afghan women which has led so many to flee the country in search of better, safer lives.
In this week’s episode of EB-5 Investment Voice, Mona and Rebecca are joined by award-winning political journalists, Ramita Navai and Karim Shah. Ramita and Karim recently traveled to Afghanistan to investigate the harsh realities faced by Afghan women at the hands of the Taliban. They met with political activists, prisoners, students, and other women living under the brutal Taliban regime. Last month, their new documentary ‘Afghanistan Undercover’ premiered on PBS Frontline.
