KOLD 13: Afghan interpreter safe in Tucson

By Brooke Wagner | KOLD 13

An Afghan interpreter, who’d been helping U.S. forces since he was a teenager, is safe here in Tucson.

The refugee we can refer to only as “Zabi,” for security purposes, is part of the first wave of refugees to arrive in Southern Arizona, after the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.

We first shared Zabi’s story in August, as he waited with thousands at Kabul airport gates, desperate for rescue.

A Marine captain Zabi interpreted for, and Scottsdale immigration attorney Darius Amiri, worked day and night to coordinate a flight to Qatar for Zabi and his fiancé. From there, they flew to refugee relocation in New Mexico.

“It’s like something you’d see in a movie like a spy movie or something,” Amiri said. The attorney with Rose Law Group met Amiri at the airport, gifting him with a rolling suitcase filled with clothes. Over last weekend, Zabi settled in to a Tucson apartment.
