Resolution would express Spokane’s support for resettling Afghan refugees

Spokane City Council to vote on a nonbinding resolution expressing support for Afghan refugees.

With hundreds expected to arrive in the coming months, the Spokane City Council will vote on a resolution Monday expressing support for the relocation of Afghan refugees here.

Though nonbinding, the resolution would formally state elected officials’ support for taking in those fleeing Afghanistan as the United States withdrew its military and the Taliban gained control last month.

The resolution notes the assistance that many Afghans provided to the U.S. military during its nearly 20-year war in the country.
