Senator Braun Statement on temporary housing of Afghan evacuees at Camp Atterbury

Washington, D.C. - On Monday, Indiana Senator Mike Braun issued a statement on the housing of Afghans at Indiana's Camp Atterbury.

Braun said:

"As around 5,000 evacuated Afghans will be temporarily housed at Indiana’s Camp Atterbury while they are vetted for resettlement across the country, it is extremely important that all local units of government and first responders know who they are, how many, and what part of the vetting process they’re in so Hoosiers do not suffer the fallout of President Biden’s disastrous withdrawal. I have communicated to the relevant federal departments that vetting details and any plans for resettlement must be transparent and public so we can honor our commitments to our Afghan allies while keeping Hoosier communities safe."
