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 a potential decrease in the Presidential Determination on Refugee Admissions.
Our country has both the capacity and responsibility to take in the world’s most vulnerable, and I urge you and your colleagues in Congress to press the White House to raise the admissions cap to 75,000 refugees in the coming fiscal year.
As Americans, many of our own ancestors were immigrants fleeing war or religious persecution. We should be proud of our immigrant tradition and continue to offer safe haven and promote basic human rights.
As your constituent, I ask that you please call upon the administration to uphold American values by increasing refugee admissions. 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 #RaiseTheCeiling.
