Tell President Biden We Must Welcome Refugees

By |April 16th, 2021|

On April 16, President Biden signed a Presidential Determination for U.S. Refugee Admissions that will continue the policy of the Trump Administration and limit the number of refugees accepted into the U.S. to 15,000 this year. Contrary to previous commitments made by the Administration to increase Fiscal Year 2021 refugee resettlement figures to 62,500, this decision will have a devastating impact on thousands of refugees waiting for resettlement to the United States.

Restore Asylum at the US-Mexico Border

By |April 16th, 2021|

Systems that provide protection to the forcibly displaced have been tested over the past year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although people fleeing conflict and persecution have a fundamental right to seek asylum, many countries – including the United States – continue to close their borders to asylum seekers. For more information, check out this recent report from Jesuit Refugee Service USA and Georgetown University’s Institute for the Study of International Migration.

Stop the Expansion of Taxpayer-Funded Abortions

By |April 16th, 2021|

There are simultaneous efforts in both Sacramento and Washington, DC to use more taxpayer funds for abortions. California Senate Bill 245 (Health care coverage: abortion services: cost sharing.) would remove insurance co-pays or any other cost-sharing requirement for all abortion services and would prohibit cost sharing from being imposed on a Medi-Cal beneficiary for those services. Meanwhile, powerful members of Congress are seeking to overturn permanently the 45 year-old bipartisan Hyde Amendment and related policies, resulting in billions of taxpayer dollars to be used to pay for elective abortions in the United States and throughout the world.

Let your lawmakers in Sacramento and in Congress know that women deserve better than abortion. Women need greater access to life-affirming services, not more assistance to have an abortion.
