IMMEDIATE PRIORITY: contact your U.S. senators as soon as possible as a vote on HR 4038 is scheduled for Wednesday December 2nd. Please encourage your Senators to vote against the bill and to support the resettlement of Syrian and Iraqi refugees.
Last week, a number of Governors announced that they want to stop their states from resettling Syrian refugees. The U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 4038, The American Security against Foreign Enemies Act, which would grind to a halt the resettlement of Syrian and Iraqi refugees. These actions and the anti-refugee sentiment that has accompanied them, are morally reprehensible and go against who we are as a nation. It is critical that public officials hear from their constituents NOW as decisions are being made in the U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives and state governments that will drastically impact the lives of Syrian refugees.
Please take action TODAY:
- Call and Tweet your Representative, Senators, and Governors; and
- Follow Church World Service updates on Facebook.
