WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO) released the following statement on President Biden’s plan to withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan by Sept. 11: 

“We’ve had troops in Afghanistan for nearly 20 years now, it’s time to bring them home. I fully support President Biden’s plan to withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan later this year, but we need to make sure we’re not giving up the progress we’ve made there. We need to work with our international partners to ensure our withdrawal from the region doesn’t put our troops, our nation’s security, or the security of the women and children who live there, at risk.”
