First please sign THIS PETITION if you have not done so already.  

Please then take a personal moment this morning to call Senator Isakson about President Trump’s plan to issue an executive order that would slash refugee admissions by more than half, grind all resettlement to a halt, indefinitely ban Syrian refugees, and prioritize religious minorities over all other refugees.

Please call Senator Isakson’s office at (770) 661-0999 and state…..

Please ask the Senator to urge President Trump to abandon his plan to reduce refugee admissions into the U.S. and do everything in his power to ensure the U.S. and Georgia continues to welcome refugees.

If you need more…..Resettlement is a core American legacy that extends freedom and opportunity for refugees to rebuild their lives in safety and dignity. I support the resettlement of refugees into the U.S., into Georgia, and welcome refugees into my local community. I expect the Senator to support the openness to refugees this country was founded upon.

After calling (or if you do not call still send the email anyway) send an email to Senator Isakson here with the following (or a personal version of it) and the subject line “Support Refugees”:

Senator Isakson,

I support refugee resettlement in the U.S. I am strongly opposed to the announcement expected from President Trump that would slash refugee admissions, grind all resettlement to a halt, stop resettling refugees from certain countries, and preference religious minorities. This discriminatory announcement flies in the face of core American values and this country’s founding principles. It does not reflect the welcome for refugees I see in my community every day. Please urge President Trump to abandon this plan and do everything in your power to stop this announcement.

Thank You,

Your Name

(Remember to change Your Name to your name.)
