Tell Congress - Support Refugees Now and in the Future
Over 26 million people are actively seeking a place to find refuge. President Trump has decided the U.S. will admit 18,000 of them this fiscal year. This is our country’s lowest admissions quota since the Refugee Act went into effect. This impacts not only present-day refugee families but also families of the future. President Trump’s yearly slashes on this program are dismantling processes and agencies that provide crucial support to families arriving in this country. The refugee resettlement program took decades to build, and it could take decades to rebuild it.
The GRACE Act would set a minimum refugee admissions goal of 95,000 people each year and take away the power from the president to end the refugee program. Tell your representative and senators we must stop the Trump administration’s efforts to turn away refugees.
