The US has stated that it will look into the case of an Afghan pilot facing deportation from the UK to Rwanda.
The pilot has a history of flying combat missions alongside British and American fighters against the Taliban and has been described as a "patriot" by former Western coalition allies.
The pilot claims that he was forced to flee to the UK in a small boat due to security concerns.
The case has gained support from British military chiefs, celebrities, and politicians, but the British government has not yet made a decision on granting the pilot asylum.
The White House has stated that they will investigate the pilot's eligibility for asylum in the US and that the Joe Biden
administration is committed to helping Afghan allies of coalition forces with their attempts to relocate to the US.
