The United Nations needs action from Americans now more than ever.
There are already severe consequences from the U.S. Refugee Program suspension announced on January 27th. UNHCR (the UN’s refugee agency) estimates that 20,000 refugees in precarious circumstances might have been resettled to the United States during the 120 days covered by the suspension.
In total, more than 65 million people have been forcibly displaced worldwide, creating the worst refugee crisis since World War II. The truth is, no one wants to be a refugee. Thousands of families have been forced to flee their homes and leave everything behind – everything except their dreams for a safer future. The U.S. cannot deprive refugees of the one thing they still have: hope.
