Refugees: Responding to the Crisis

Whether we’re admitting 85,000 or 110,000 people, the U.S. still isn’t acknowledging the magnitude of the refugee crisis  and our responsibility to act. The U.S. should develop a bold agenda to offer refuge to displaced populations through resettlement and other forms of protection, but Congress has so far failed to fund even a modest increase in refugee assistance.

We are in the midst of the worst refugee crisis since World War II, and the U.S. should lead by example to resettle and assist refugees.
Please provide full funding to the Office of Refugee Resettlement to provide support for refugees, asylees, victims of human trafficking, and all populations under its mandate. Please also provide robust funding for other refugee-related accounts and refugee assistance overseas.
Across the world, from Syria to Central America, refugees are being forced to flee their homes because of violence and persecution. Just like many of us, these are mothers, fathers, sons and daughters, seeking a chance to live their lives in peace.
I hope you will increase funding to provide the necessary support for receiving and integrating refugees in American communities.
