While Yemen is currently engaged in a long-standing war that has resulted in an unprecedented humanitarian crisis and famine, the COVID-19 global pandemic has only exacerbated the crisis in Yemen. 400 American citizens and legal permanent residents stranded in Yemen had intended on traveling to that country for a brief period of time and were scheduled to return to the U.S. at the end of March 2020.
The U.S. State Department has arranged with Yemeni and Saudi authorities to offer limited repatriation flights from Yemen through Saudi Arabia to the United States on June 28 and July 1. CAIR-SFBA is partnering with the Yemeni American Association, Yemeni Alliance Committee, and Asian Law Caucus, and is ready to provide advice and advocacy on how best to reunite with family members who are currently in Yemen.
