Tell President Trump: We cannot slam the door on innocent people in their hour of need.
President Trump just signed an Executive Order that eviscerates our refugee resettlement program, leaving thousands of vulnerable people in limbo, blatantly discriminating against Muslims, and slamming the door on Syrian refugees entirely.
It is un-American to turn away those seeking safety and to discriminate against groups of people because of nationality and religion.
Dozens of actual Green Card holders have been deceitfully forced to give up their Green Cards by Homeland Security Officers, visas have been ignored and their holders shamefully returned to countries where they have no future.
Please send President Trump an email:
Feel free to use this as a template, or add to it to personalize it.
We cannot slam the door on refugees
Dear President Trump,
As a voter, I’m urging you to rescind your Executive Order to slash refugee resettlement and ban immigrants and refugees based on nationality and religion.
Instead of affirming the values of the United States by granting safety and protection to refugees, you have broken with more than 40 years of bipartisan American policy – and over 200 years of American tradition – by slamming the door on innocent people in their hour of need.
Slashing the refugee ceiling and banning refugees on the basis of their religion is not only discriminatory, but also unlikely to make Americans safer. You must not bring this successful, bipartisan, and rigorously-screened program to a screeching halt. Even a temporary suspension of the resettlement program will reset the clock for refugees waiting to be granted entry to the US as medical and security expire, forcing refugees to start again from scratch.
The US has safely welcomed over 15,000 Syrians to our country. After enduring unspeakable violence in their homeland and years of waiting in refugee camps as they went through the multiple layers of our security screening process, they are finally beginning to rebuild their lives here in the US. Thousands more who are currently in the midst of the vetting process still need our support. They are being threatened by ISIS and other terrorist groups.
The US has safely resettled tens of thousands of Muslim refugees over the last four decades who have not only become US citizens, but who have also enriched our country economically, socially, and culturally. Denying entry to our country and safe haven from harm to people based on religion and country makes us less, not more, safe by demonstrating that we as Americans are willing to throw out our core values.
As a country enriched by all of those who have arrived on our shores since our founding, we have offered safety to hundreds of thousands of people in need from around the world.
Refugees are actually revitalizing the communities in which they are living, contributing their experience and energy to our workforce, and creating new jobs and economic opportunity.
Please do not deny these needy people entry!
