President Biden promised to reopen the refugee resettlement program but has yet to sign his presidential determination. Because of his delay the lives of refugees and their safety still hang in the balance. We must and we will hold this administration accountable.
Raise your voice today and join us as we petition President Joe Biden to restore dignity and humanity and make the United States a welcoming country once again.
Thank you for your public commitment to restore the refugee ceiling for FY 2021 to 62,500 and to further increase the refugee ceiling to 125,000 in the coming year. We are so grateful that the U.S. will once again be a global leader in refugee resettlement. Christians, and so many other Americans throughout the country are eager to welcome these new neighbors into our communities.
We’re writing today to urge you to follow through on your commitment by signing the updated presidential determination for FY 2021, which would increase the refugee ceiling to 62,500. Your signature is needed to allow refugees, who have in many cases already been waiting for years or even decades, to finally find protection in the U.S. Without your signature, these refugees risk losing everything as scheduled flights to bring them here are being cancelled. We urge you to take action immediately.
