"Over the past few years, the number of refugees admitted to the United States has declined dramatically. One group affected by this policy change has been those persecuted for their faith, including many persecuted Christians as well as other religious minorities. For example, the number of persecuted Christians from the Middle East allowed to the U.S. has declined by more than 98 percent from the first half of 2016 to the first half of 2018, when just twenty-three Christian refugees from the region were allowed to the U.S.
We invite you to join the leadership organizations of the Evangelical Immigration Table in signing on to this letter to urge the administration to raise the refugee ceiling back to a historically normal level, which would allow more persecuted Christians as well as others facing persecution for various reasons to find safety, rebuild their lives, and practice their faith without government interference in the U.S. In signing on, you'll be adding your voice to those of the following organizations:
Council for Christian Colleges and Universities
Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention
Korean Churches for Community Development/Faith and Community Empowerment
National Association of Evangelicals
National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference
The Wesleyan Church
