We are in the midst of the largest global refugee crisis in history. Nearly 80 million people are currently displaced because of war, violence and persecution. We need to take action. Join USA for UNHCR and add your name to support a robust increase in U.S. refugee resettlement.
For the past four years the United States resettlement program has not risen to the growing need, admitting fewer and fewer refugees into our country. Currently the U.S. is at a historically low annual refugee admissions level of 15,000, compared to the highest level of 200,000 in 1980.
As caring Americans, we believe in a country that welcomes people who are forced to flee and invites them to make a new start in the United States. Refugees undergo an extensive vetting process which can take up to two years. We are a nation largely of immigrants, who have come to this country seeking safety and a better life for themselves and their families.
Add your name to support President Biden and his administration renewing our commitment to refugees and robustly increasing annual refugee admissions. >>
