“FAITH LEADERS OPPOSE HISTORICALLY LOW RESETTLEMENT GOAL FOR FY19; URGE ADMINISTRATION TO RESETTLE 75,000”
“The recently released refugee admissions target confirms our fears that it goes even further than last year’s historically low figure. The world is facing the worst refugee crisis in history, but President Trump, driven by hard liners like Senior Policy Advisor Stephen Miller, continues to pursue a nativist, xenophobic agenda. As Jews, we know all too well the consequences of turning away families seeking refuge in our nation. We demand the President resettle all planned 45,000 refugees from this past year, and commit to resettling at least 75,000 refugees next year.” declared Nancy K. Kaufman, CEO of the National Council of Jewish Women.
