Use this as a sample message to give during your call:

 

My name is [Name], and I am your constituent from [City, State]. I am calling because I am deeply concerned about low refugee arrivals. We are failing to meet our commitment of 30,000 refugees this year-the lowest in history. And discriminatory immigration bans, such as the asylum and travel ban, have exacerbated this reality.

 

Protecting vulnerable populations is not a zero-sum game; we can and should protect refugees and others fleeing violence and persecution -- regardless of their country of origin or religious affiliation.

 

The NO BAN Act would prevent faith-based discrimination in immigration, drawing the country toward a stronger and fairer refugee admissions program.

 

As your constituent, I urge you to support the NO BAN Act and add your voice to that of other courageous members of Congress in defending America's legacy of welcoming refugees. Our country has the capacity and responsibility to do so.

 

Thank you for your time and consideration.


You can also tweet @ your Senators/Representatives with the same message, share this action alert with your social networks, and continue to follow this advocacy effort by using #NoBan.

“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 at 25,000 for next year, which would be a new all-time low. 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 FY19. Please do everything in your power to see that the administration commits to resettling at least 75,000 refugees in 2019. Resettlement is a core American legacy that allows refugees to rebuild their lives. My community welcomes refugees, and I urge you to reflect the best of our nation by supporting refugee resettlement. More specifically, please urge the chairs of the judiciary committees, Senator Grassley and Representative Goodlatte, to advocate for a higher admissions goal.”
