As Congress approaches the December deadline for funding bills, the world is experiencing the largest refugee crisis since World War II.
Millions of innocent children and families have been forced to flee their war torn countries. Providing help to refugees escaping war in the Middle East is vital to our own security. For once, instead of spending billions on war, we can use our resources to provide humanitarian relief and save lives.
We are calling on Congress to act on this crisis and pass the bipartisan Graham-Leahy bill that would provide an extra $1 billion in emergency funding.
The United States is doing almost nothing to help this crisis. Pledging to take in 10,000 refugees eventually is not enough, when 19 million people have fled and countries like Germany take in 10,000 in one day.
Call on Congress now and tell them the US needs to provide support for the refugees in crisis!
