3. ANSWER OUR ALERT TO CALL YOUR SENATORS & REPRESENTATIVES at
today and often to share your support for refugees and the U.S. Refugee Program, them you support the refugee resettlement program and oppose President Trump's executive orders against refugees.
*Call 3 times to connect with your 1 Representative & 2 Senators
"I'm your constituent from [City, State], and I support refugee resettlement. I strongly oppose the President's executive orders against refugees - both the original January version and the rewritten version released on March 6th. The order will bar individuals from Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen; grind refugee resettlement from all countries to a halt; and reduce the number of refugees we welcome to 50,000, a historic low. This does not reflect the welcome for refugees I see in my community, and I urge you to do everything in your power to see this executive order rescinded."
