Biden Must Overturn Trump Refugee Policies

Unite Oregon is outraged and horrified by President Biden's decision to continue Donald Trump's inhumane refugee admissions policy, breaking his promise to the public to reverse Trump's attacks on immigrants and refugees.

In doing so, Biden has ensured that the United States will continue to turn away a record number of refugees seeking safety and sanctuary in this country, leaving tens of thousands of people in dangerous situations that will threaten their lives.

The number of displaced persons worldwide is now the largest at any point in history, but Joe Biden is turning his back on our communities, choosing instead to carry forward the bigoted policies of Donald Trump for another year. This decision is a disgrace, and we condemn it in the strongest terms.
