Urge Congress: Don't Turn Your Back on Refugees
As the one-year anniversary of the first refugee ban approaches, we need your help to fight back and remind Congress that the Trump Administration's refugee policies DO NOT represent American values.
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) is sounding the alarm bells. Not only has the Trump Administration just set the lowest refugee admissions level in U.S. history, they are doing everything they can to make sure they don't meet their own meager goal.
This is unacceptable. For decades, America has been a shining example of freedom and opportunity. Until now.
Families are fleeing war torn countries to escape violence, leaving everything behind in hopes for a safer future.
As Americans, we stand up for the most vulnerable. We make decisions based on what is right. We step up to help when we see people in trouble. We as a nation are better for welcoming refugees here.
Simply put, for decades, America has been a shining example of freedom and opportunity. Until now.
Please STAND WITH US and TAKE ACTION. Urge Congress to support refugee admissions and protect families seeking reunification. Join the IRC's community of advocates for refugee resettlement today!

Dear Senator/Representative _:
I write in support of refugee resettlement to the United States, and to express concern regarding President Trump's refugee policies.
There are more refugees now than at any point in modern history. Refugee families are fleeing war-torn countries to escape violence, leaving everything behind in hopes of a safer future. For decades, America has been a shining example of freedom and opportunity because of our commitment to refugees.
However, the Trump Administration's decision to set the fiscal year (FY) 2018 refugee admissions level at 45,000, the lowest in US history, is a rejection of the longstanding, proud U.S. tradition of refugee resettlement. On top of this, resettlement experts estimate that less than half of this meager goal will actually arrive due to additional refugee bans and barriers introduced by the administration this year.
These decisions do not represent American values. Please express your opposition to the Trump Administration and urge them to reverse these damaging policies.
