The Supreme Court’s befuddled ruling in Donald Trump’s thinly veiled attempt at a racist Muslim ban has only succeeded in further disarray for travelers and is creating a humanitarian nightmare for refugees fleeing persecution. A 120 ban on refugee arrivals will deeply affect those near the tail end of the vetting and travel process dooming them to start the entire two year process over again once our country sorts out whether it chooses to be welcoming or xenophobic.
A bipartisan letter from 19 U.S. Senators went to the Trump Administration on June 29, 2017 advocating for ensuring the “ongoing implementation of the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) continues without delay”.
Both Senator Isakson and Senator Perdue are missing from this leadership opportunity to ensure Georgia is on the right side of history.
Please take a moment this morning to call Senator Perdue letting him know you are disappointed in his failure to join his colleagues in the Senate in signing this letter.
Please call Senator Perdue at 404 865-0087 and state…..
Please let the Senator know I am disappointed in his failure in joining 19 bi-partisan Senate members in signing the June 29th letter to the Trump administration advocating for the continuation of the U.S. refugee program without interruption. Thank you.
After calling please send an email to Senator Perdue with the following (or a personal version of it) with the drop down menu topic “Immigration” and the subject line “Senate Refugee Letter”:
I was disappointed in your failure to join nineteen of your bi-partisan Senate colleagues in signing the June 29th letter to the Trump administration advocating for the continuation of the U.S. refugee program without interruption.
I support the welcoming of refugees and immigrants into the U.S. and Georgia and expect you as my elected representative to the U.S. Senate to reflect those same ideals.
