An open letter to the President

Stand by your commitment to increase the refugee cap and expand eligibility

6 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

Dear President Biden, It is essential that you stand by your commitment and lift your predecessor’s historically low cap on refugees. I fully expect you to increase the cap to 62,500 refugees and expand the eligibility criteria by May 15, as promised. I commend your action which will allow the 35,000 refugees who have already been cleared via our very rigorous screening process, to enter the U.S immediately. However, there are 100,000 people in the refugee pipeline. Not only are their lives in limbo but the vast majority are awaiting approval in life-threatening circumstances. The U.S. must increase the refugee cap significantly, even if it is not possible to meet the target because we must send a message that America will be a leader again in offering safe haven to the world's oppressed. Thank you.
