The YPG was the most effective Syrian force at fighting against ISIS. The US needed Syrian partners to defeat ISIS. So the US allied with the YPG.

The US provided the YPG with small arms, anti-tank missiles, artillery, and training. They also provided air-strikes against ISIS positions.

The US never had any control over the internal workings of Rojava.

Now that ISIS has been territoriality defeated, The US is supporting Rojava to keep Assad (AKA Russia) form regaining control over all of Syria and to keep Turkey from destroying Rojava.
