URGENT: Tell your senators that refugees are NOT our enemies

Posted on January 15, 2016


Join us in telling our nation's leaders to oppose legislation that would stop, pause or defund the resettlement of Syrian and Iraqi refugees. The American Security against Foreign Enemies (SAFE) Act of 2015 (H.R. 4038) would effectively reject humanitarian efforts and close the doors to these refugees. Our country is repeating the same mistakes of the past when we closed our doors to Jews fleeing the Nazi regime and punished innocent Japanese Americans with illegal internment.

Tell your senators that refugees are not our enemies!

The House of Representatives passed the American SAFE Act in November 2015. The legislation is now going before the Senate in the week of Jan. 18, 2016. As it goes before the Senate, we urge you to please contact your senators directly through our easy-to-use form to stop this irresponsible legislation.

The world is witnessing the largest refugee crisis since World War II. We need true leadership at this time where we join the international community against the common enemy terrorizing our nations. By closing our doors to refugees, we are only victimizing families in need and not making our country safer.

Join us in demanding that our senators uphold our American values and stand with the millions of Americans who support and welcome refugees. Please click here to send a letter today!
