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 deeply concerned that President Trump has set a new historic low refugee admissions goal of 30,000 for FY 2019.
Protecting vulnerable populations is not a zero-sum game; we can and should protect refugees and others fleeing violence and persecution. Refugee resettlement facilitates U.S. diplomatic, national security, and foreign policy interests. The White House is also required to consult with Congress prior to setting the refugee admissions number, but they have not done so.
As a member of Congress, you are uniquely poised to urge the Chairman of the U.S Senate Judiciary Committee -- Senator Chuck Grassley -- to advise the Administration to increase the refugee admissions cap to at least 75,000 in the coming fiscal year.
Our country has both the capacity and responsibility to take in the world’s most vulnerable, and as your constituent, I urge you to add your voice to that of other courageous members of Congress in defending America's legacy of welcoming refugees.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
