  1. Dear Sir.

    I hope you are well
    I’m sending you this message to inform you that I’m speaking with you on behalf of 100 Iraqis who worked hard and sincerely, and this number is from translators and former employees of the military and American companies from 2004 until 2014 in Iraq.
    We all have refugees cases with the IOM through the USRAP-P2 program, we have endured many years to complete our cases, but without success and for many reasons, including the suspension of the organization’s work due to previous government decisions.
    Currently, some of us are being hunted and another part has been killed by militias over the past years.
    Please we ask the US government to re-activate the SIV program, this program was effective until October 2014 for us.
    Please we ask you to try to help us for activate the SIV program (Special Imigration Visa) for Iraqi translators and employees, or please give us advices on how to try to re active the SIV, I’m calling on you in the name of humanity to help Iraqi translators please.
