The International Rescue Committee is a multi-million dollar a year non-profit largely funded by you, the US taxpayer. They are lobbying for more refugees and asylum seekers to come to America and there is more money in it for them if they do. Remember S.744 (the Gang of Eight bill) has an NGO slush fund.
Just now they are tweeting to their people the following action alert. They say refugees and asylum issues will be addressed in the Judiciary Committee on Monday, the 20th.
So you should contact Senate Judiciary Committee members and tell them to strike all refugee/asylum sections from the bill and hold separate hearings on the program that has never (for three decades!) been properly reviewed by Congress. It is especially important to review it in light of the Boston Marathon terror attack perpetrated by people to whom we gave asylum.
Here is what the IRC is tweeting to their groupies:
URGENT: Protect Refugee & Asylee Provisions in the Immigration Bill
Call the Senate Judiciary Committee Today!
For decades, the U.S. has provided protection to refugees and asylees who face persecution because of their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion. In search of a better life for themselves and for their families, refugees and asylees are eager to participate fully in the economic and civic life of this country. Through a network of 22 offices in the United States, the International Rescue Committee provides assistance and the tools of self-reliance to refugees and asylees.
The Senate immigration reform bill (S.744) includes provisions that would provide much needed improvements to the protection of asylum seekers and refugees. On Monday, May 20, the Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to consider amendments relating to refugees, asylees, and other vulnerable populations in the bipartisan immigration bill. Committee members need to hear from you – refugees, volunteers, and community members from across the country. Please call 1-866-940-2439 to speak with the office of a specific Judiciary Committee member.
Here are the members of the Committee!
Senator Jeff Sessions has been doing a huge amount of work, please tell him to keep it up and to strip out all Refugee/Asylum provisions from the bill! These are provisions that will allow more refugees/asylum seekers to come to America, as well as put more of your money into the pockets of refugee contractors! Tell them to strip out the special new grant program for non-profit open borders groups like the IRC!
Call as many Senators as you can!
