Stand Against Trump's Record-Low Cap on Refugee Admissions

Share this page Facebook

At 45,000, the refugee resettlement admissions ceiling set by President Trump is the lowest number ever established by any president since the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program was created in 1980. If this stands, America’s reputation and capacity as a safe haven will be tarnished for years to come.

Resettling refugees doesn’t just save lives, it also makes the United States safer and plays an important role in U.S. foreign policy and security.

With more refugees than at any point in recorded history, now is the time to show that America welcomes refugees.

Make your voice heard by writing to your representatives in Congress and urging them to pass legislation to welcome refugees at a level proportionate to the crisis and in line with our capacity, history and values.
