ACLU Sends Letter to Congress About Syrian Refugee Resettlement

Over 20 U.S. governors and federal lawmakers have attempted to draw a link between the tragedy in Paris and the admission and resettlement of Syrian refugees in the U.S. It would violate the Constitution for a governor to bar an entire group of refugees from coming into their state because of their nationality.

Yesterday, the ACLU sent a letter to the House and Senate expressing support for the U.S. refugee resettlement program. It urges members of Congress to oppose proposals that call for the suspension of the program or the imposition of restrictions on funding for Syrians and other groups of refugees. The letter was signed by 80 organizations — a coalition of refugee and immigration law experts, humanitarian aid organizations, faith, and labor and civil and human rights groups.
