"Reports indicate that the White House is close to making the decision to once again slash the number of refugees allowed to resettle in the U.S. next year, perhaps to as few as 25,000 refugees. This would be a reduction of some 40 percent from this year’s cap of 45,000 and represents only one thousandth (0.1%) of those in our world needing protection.
We at World Relief strongly oppose this reduction. Here’s why...
The U.S. is ready, willing and able to welcome 75,000 refugees. At this time of unprecedented refugee need, with over 25 million refugees worldwide, the U.S. should be leading and increasing, not reducing, the number of refugees we welcome.
We need you to call the White House—TODAY—to let them know.
Simply call (202) 456-1111 and share the message above. We know from those who have worked at the White House that phone calls like this can make a huge difference. I wouldn’t be asking you to take the time to call if it didn’t matter.
Please, call the White House now and tell them to welcome 75,000 refugees to the U.S. this next year. Thank you."
