COSPONSOR A BIPARTISAN RESOLUTION
COMMEMORATING THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE REFUGEE ACT OF 1980

 

Cosponsor(s): Rep. Curtis
 

Dear Colleague:

America has a proud history of welcoming the most vulnerable, including refugees so as to leverage foreign policy and strengthen national and regional security—and together—continue to build the American dream. It is imperative that we not be derelict in our
duty; and thus, uphold the Refugee Act of 1980, and the amendments made by that Act, as a lifesaving solution critical to global humanitarian efforts that serves to—strengthen global security; advance the United States foreign policy goals and national security
interests; support countries that host hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of refugees; collaborate with and support the efforts of international community to support and resettle vulnerable populations; stabilize sensitive conflicts and regions around
the globe; and encourage other nations to contribute to this cause through humanitarian support, resettlement, and finding strategies to address existing conflict and prevent future conflict.

We must ensure that the Refugee Act of 1980 continues to save lives, promotes the general welfare and fulfills the true meaning of its purpose—upholding the rights and practices of self-governance and free speech regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, or
nationality.

Thus, it is imperative that Congress acts expediently amid the world’s determination to confront an unprecedented pandemic health challenge to all people. Please join us as a cosponsor to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the Refugee Act of 1980. Ultimately,
to uphold the long-standing bipartisan effort to promote robust humanitarian leadership responsibility in ensuring the survival of this indispensable refugee resettlement program.

If you have any questions or would like to cosponsor this letter, please contact Alex Guajardo with Rep. Garcia at
alex.guajardo@mail.house.gov or Rebekah Rodriguez with Rep. Curtis at
rebekah.rodriguez@mail.house.gov. Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Sylvia R. Garcia                   John R. Curtis
