As the global community faces the largest displacement crisis in history, with over 70.8 million people around the world are displaced, including 25 million refugees, the current administration has systematically reversed our nation’s long history as a world leader in refugee protection and resettlement. On Friday, September 27th, the administration announced an all-time low refugee admissions goal for fiscal year 2020 at 18,000- and signed an executive order allowing states and local municipalities with the ability to opt out of the program. This is unacceptable and we have a moral responsibility to fulfill our commitment to resettle more refugees.
A press conference will be held by We Are All America on October 3rd at 12:30 PM at the Arizona State Capitol. It will be joined by faith leaders, refugee agencies, and community actvistis to demand that we stop the attacks on vulnerable people seeking safety and return refugee resettlement to historic norms. They will be joined by Representative Athena Salman (D-26) and Representative Tony Rivero (D-21).
