#WhereRtheRefugees Action on Capitol Hill
Please join this public action to hold the Trump administration accountable As we approach the halfway point in the fiscal year on March 31st, we have a moral responsibility to hold the administration accountable, for slashing the refugee program by 75 percent.
This is the worst refugee crisis in history. With global need at its highest, the Trump administration has dismantled the refugee resettlement program and reversed our nation’s history as a world leader in refugee protection.
The administration set a new record-low refugee admissions goal for fiscal year 2019 at 30,000, and what’s worse, we are only on track to resettle 21,000 refugees this year - Together, we ask #WhereRtheRefugees?
Refugees who we promised to protect are still awaiting safety, and families have been separated for years because of these drastic reductions.

When: 12 PM on Thursday, March 28th
