Our Call to Welcome
The current administration set the ceiling for refugee admissions for fiscal year 2018 at 45,000. This is the lowest cap in the history of the program, and a drastic departure from the U.S.’ historic role as a leader in the humanitarian work of refugee resettlement. These policies will severely inhibit the ability of the Episcopal Church and other faith communities to live into our call to serve and welcome the least of these.
Episcopal Migration Ministries and our partners are already feeling the effects: tens of thousands of refugees already vetted and approved for admission to the U.S. have been left in harm’s way, budgets have been reduced and professionals with decades of experience let go. Alarmingly, our ability to ensure that our newest neighbors feel welcomed and safe has been compromised.
We need your help to ensure refugees are welcomed to a place of safety and opportunity.
