Interfaith Immigration Coalition Webinar, TODAY, 4 PM Eastern, March 26th
Dreams Deferred, #DefundHate, WhereRtheRefugees?
How are immigration and refugee protections being dismantled in recent budgets and policy changes?
On this webinar, learn the latest inside negotiations between Congress and the White House to pass a permanent, legislative solution to protect dreamers and uphold family unity, defund the detention, deportation, and border militarization machine, and lift up the need to protect the U.S. refugee resettlement program.
Join advocates to learn how to advocate for cuts for immigration detention, the deportation force, and border militarization - especially as funding for harmful enforcement efforts will result in deportations of dreamers, TPS holders, and our community members.
At the same time, the administration dismantling the refugee resettlement program while refugee arrivals slow to a trickle. As we approach the halfway point for this fiscal year on March 31st, fewer than 10,000 refugees have been resettled -- far below the 22,000 refugees who should have been resettled to meet the administration's 45,000 refugee admissions goal, already the lowest in U.S. history. Learn about action steps to hold the administration accountable to see at least 45,000 refugees resettled this year and that the administration commits to resettling at least 75,000 refugees next year.
