Call to Action
Our country's entire system of refugee resettlement is being dismantled by the Trump Administration—and Congress is doing nothing. We demand our Senators and Representatives hold the Administration accountable.
With global need at its highest, our U.S. refugee resettlement program is being systematically dismantled. As refugees and friends of refugees, we know the challenges newcomers face are greater than ever, and we must rally in support of our shared values of welcome and our nation's commitment to protect those seeking freedom, safety and refugee in the United States. Please join We Are All America and our partners across the country in taking action.
TAKE ACTION TO OPPOSE THE MORTENSEN NOMINATION
Last month, Trump nominated Ronald Mortensen, an anti-immigrant/refugee extremist, to administer the US refugee resettlement program.
Mortensen has made his positions on immigration issues clear as a fellow of the extremist Center for Immigration Studies. He has insisted that most undocumented immigrants are felons and repeatedly attacked DREAMers. He went after war hero Sen. John McCain, (R-Ariz.) over his years of work on behalf of immigration reform, saying that his "support for illegal aliens" will cause him to be seen as an ISIS "collaborator" who rolled out the red carpet for "ISIS terrorists on the Mexican side of the border with car bombs ready to go." He has even attacked his own Mormon faith for their humanitarian position on migrants.
Mortensen's nomination to lead the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration at the State Department is part of a campaign to change our nation’s long tradition of welcoming refugees and immigrants and offering sanctuary to the persecuted. If confirmed, Mortensen would be able to systematically undermine our global commitment and destroy refugee resettlement.
He must be stopped.
