Take Action: Tell your Senators Refugees are not our enemies

DEAR SENATORS: Refugees are NOT our enemies.

Join us in telling our nation’s leaders to oppose legislation that would stop, pause or defund the resettlement of Syrian and Iraqi refugees.

The American Security against Foreign Enemies (SAFE) Act of 2015 (H.R. 4038) would effectively reject humanitarian efforts and close the doors to these refugees. Our country is repeating the same mistakes of the past when we closed our doors to Jews fleeing the Nazi regime and punished innocent Japanese Americans with illegal internment.

The Arab American Civic Council urges you to please contact your U.S. Senator and urge them to reject the SAFE Act of 2015 (H.R. 4038). Ask your senators to uphold our American values by welcoming refugees.

Call the United States Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121.

A switchboard operator will connect you directly with the Senate office you request.
