Refugee resettlement agencies decimated under Trump

WASHINGTON — When Nassir Ahmad saw the evacuation of thousands of Afghan refugees to the United States last August, he knew his translation expertise would be needed.

Ahmad, 34, originally from Afghanistan and a former combat interpreter for 14 years, immediately started applying for jobs helping to translate for newly arrived refugees. For four months he worked with the International Rescue Committee at Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas, where he provided translation services and taught refugees about American customs.
