IMMIGRANTS AND REFUGEES
You shall treat the alien who resides with you no differently than the natives born among you; you shall love the alien as yourself; for you too were once aliens in the land of Egypt. I, the LORD, am your God.

There are nearly 26 million refugees worldwide with 1.4 million needing resettlement. In 2019, the U.S. limited the number of refugees admitted for resettlement to 30,000 - the lowest in the history of the country. For 2020 the administration is proposing to "zero out" the refugee program. Learn more about refugees and refugee resettlement here and take action here!
