2020 Refugee Admissions - We Need Your Help

 

Trump officials trying to reduce refugee admissions to zero next year

Today, we are humbly asking for your help and support. We must do everything in our power to protect refugee resettlement programs, such as Ascentria’s, from being decimated by the current administration.D_2yVWmW4AETxoy.jpg

The administration is considering setting the refugee admissions goal for next year at ZERO, this would amount to a full refugee ban during the worst refugee crisis in world history. The consequences of this would be dire, far-reaching, and would jeopardize the thousands of refugees our nation has promised to protect.

We must call on Congress to hold the administration accountable; by law, the administration must consult with Congress prior to setting the refugee admissions goal. Please, call on your senators and representatives to do everything in their power to see that the administration commits to resettling 95,000 refugees in 2020.

Not sure what to say? Church World Service put together a script for you to use:

CALL YOUR SENATORS & REPRESENTATIVE TODAY: 

Sample Script: “: “I’m your constituent from [CITY/TOWN], and I urge you to protect the refugee resettlement program from another drastic cut by the administration. The administration is considering setting the refugee admissions goal for next year at ZERO. By law, the administration must consult with Congress prior to setting the refugee admissions goal, which means that as a member of the Judiciary Committee, you are uniquely poised to ensure that the administration fulfills its obligation to consult with Congress ahead of deciding how many refugees to welcome in FY20. The administration is also preparing another unlawful and discriminatory policy that would allow states and localities to deny refugee resettlement in their community. Please do everything in your power to see that the administration commits to resettling 95,000 refugees in 2020. My community welcomes refugees, and I urge you to reflect the best of our nation by supporting refugee resettlement."
