The Trump administration is considering lowering the refugee admissions number to less than 50,000 next year – A HISTORIC LOW.
There are more than 22 million refugees worldwide – over half are children – the worst refugee crisis the world has ever seen. Tens of thousands of refugees were expecting to be resettled this year but were blocked by the executive order. An admissions of less than 50,000 for next year would be devastating. Not only would it leave thousands of refugees in life-threatening situations abroad, but it will have long-term impacts to the infrastructure of the entire resettlement program in the United States.
This will impact the future of refugee resettlement in our country. Please take a few moments today to make a call to your members of Congress.
CALL CONGRESS TODAY!
Call 3 times to connect with your Representative and both of your Senators.
Sample Script: “I’m your constituent from [CITY/TOWN]. I strongly support refugee resettlement and am outraged by reports that President Trump may set the refugee admissions goal for next year at less than 50,000. I urge you to do everything in your power to see that the administration resettle at least 75,000 refugees in 2018. My community welcomes refugees, and I urge you to reflect the best of our American values of compassion and hospitality.”
Tweet at President Trump and your Senators & Representatives: “.@realDonaldTrump and @[YOUR Senators/Representative] 50k refugees is inexcusable – would be the lowest refugee goal EVER. Stop dismantling refugee resettlement. #RefugeesWelcome #Welcome75k
