Reader Suggestion: Send Copy of Your Letter to US Secretary of State

It is Secretary of State Pompeo who is collecting letters from governors and local elected officials about whether they are opting-in or opting-out of the US Refugee Admission Program.

(Yesterday I posted a sample letter that you might use as a template when you write to your governor or county commission.)

Since the governors who have already said YES (how many we don’t know) to ‘welcoming’ more poverty for local and state taxpayers to support are likely round-filing (trashing!) your letters, why not send a copy directly to the Secretary of State.

If your governor has, or hasn’t, opted-in or out, then still send a letter to the US State Department.

Frankly, this whole exercise is a barometer for the President.  We assume he will be reelected, and so during the next five years we expect him to make serious changes to how we resettle refugees (if we resettle refugees).  He needs to know that you care.

Send your letters to:

Secretary Michael R. Pompeo
U.S. Department of State

Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary Carol T. O’Connell
Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration, U.S. Department of State

US Department of State

2201 C St. NW

Washington, DC 20520

 

Shame on You if You Don’t Take 15 Minutes to Do This!

Try to get this done by Christmas!
