STAND WITH REFUGEES

On May 3rd — after months of delay —  President Biden followed through on his promise to set a refugee admissions goal of 62,500 for the remainder of fiscal year 2021. Now, we must make sure that the administration does everything in its power to meet this goal, beginning with the 715 refugees who had their flights cancelled in March.

It is vital that the administration welcome as many refugees as possible for the remainder of this fiscal year under the new refugee admissions goal and honor its commitment to set a refugee admissions goal of 125,000 next fiscal year. We need your help to make sure President Biden fulfills his promise to rebuild and strengthen the refugee resettlement program. Make your voice heard to commend the administration for increasing the refugee admissions goal and to urge Congress and the administration to invest in rebuilding the U.S capacity to welcome.
