Last Week President-Elect Biden Committed to Welcome – Now, Urge Congress to Act!
17 November 2020
Last Thursday, President-elect Biden delivered a message to JRS supporters in honor of our 40th Anniversary. In this message, he stated:
We’re hopeful that the incoming Biden-Harris Administration will take steps to welcome and protect refugees around the world and within our borders next year, but right now Congress is considering funding bills that will have an impact on their ability to do so.
As we confront the worst displacement crisis in history and the global COVID-19 pandemic, it is vital that Congress support and pass robust funding for refugees, asylees, and other displaced populations.
Please take action today!
