UUSJ Objects to the RAISE Act together with Interfaith Community

UUSJ signed on to a letter joining Interfaith partners, including the UUSC and UUCSJ, against scaling back legal immigration and family reunifications. The Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy (RAISE) Act would deny millions fleeing tragedy and travesty the chance to reunite with family by capping refugee admissions at 50,000 per year. The Act sets the lowest resettlement goal in U.S. history, during a global refugee crisis. Since 1980 and the Refugee Act, the average annual goal has been 95,000, and the average resettled 80,000.
