HR2146 - GRACE Act - Guaranteed Refugee Admission Ceiling Enhancement Act
The Trump administration has set this year’s refugee admissions goal at 30,000 – the lowest level in U.S. history. There are more than 25 million refugees worldwide — more than ever in our history. Congress must hold the administration accountable to rebuilding the U.S. refugee resettlement program and returning it to historic norms. It is more important than ever for Members of Congress to hear that the faith community supports refugees and our moral obligation to welcome.
The GRACE Act is legislation that would restore U.S. leadership on refugee resettlement and uphold our nation’s commitment to provide safety for refugees fleeing persecution. This bill would set a minimum floor for the annual refugee admissions goal at 95,000 – the historic average – and increase oversight over the administration through mandatory reporting requirements to Congress. Join us in calling on all Members of Congress to cosponsor the GRACE Act and be bold in choosing moral, just policies that provide refuge for vulnerable individuals seeking protection.
