Walorski Statement on Biden Admin’s Afghanistan Withdrawal

Taliban Gains Endanger America’s National Security, Imperil Human Rights of Women and Children

MISHAWAKA, Ind. – U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) released the following statement on the Biden-Harris Administration’s withdrawal from Afghanistan.

“Under the Biden-Harris Administration’s watch, the Taliban is quickly gaining ground and amassing power in a trend that will undoubtedly endanger our national security and imperil the fundamental human rights of women and children in Afghanistan,” Congresswoman Walorski said. “While I support a strategic approach to bring American troops safely home and end this war, President Biden’s foreign policy is empowering terrorists and ceding hard-fought victories. This chaotic withdrawal is a disservice to the courageous service members from Indiana and across the country who have honorably served and sacrificed throughout the War on Terror.”

Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District of Indiana, serving as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee and the Ranking Member of the House Ethics Committee.
