“I’m your constituent from [CITY/TOWN], and [as a person of faith/as a person who cares about refugees], I urge you to:
Cosponsor the bipartisan resolution commemorating the 40th Anniversary of the Refugee Act of 1980 (H.Res.902 / S.Res.545);
Provide a supplemental $642 million for the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) in FY2021 through the Refugee and Entrant Assistance account to ensure vulnerable populations like refugees don’t fall through the cracks and can receive housing, food, and the care they need to successfully integrate into American life;
Hold the administration accountable to operating the resettlement program in good faith and restoring both the resettlement program and asylum protections to historic norms; and also to welcoming Syrian refugees and other vulnerable persons.
My community welcomes Syrian refugees and believes in a strong refugee resettlement program so please make this a priority.
Thank you for considering my views."
