We are in the midst of the largest global refugee crisis in history. 82.4 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.
In recent years, the United States resettlement program has not risen to the growing need, admitting fewer and fewer refugees into our country reaching a historically low annual refugee admissions level of 15,000 (in 2020), compared to the highest level of 200,000 in 1980. The Biden administration has increased the refugee admissions cap in 2021 TO 62,500 and to 125,000 in fiscal year 2022.
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 and refugees, who have come to this country seeking safety and a better life for themselves and their families.
Add your name to support renewing the United States’ commitment to refugees and a robust increase in annual refugee admissions. >>
