Senate Blocks the American SAFE Act

IRAP is thrilled to share the news that the Senate today blocked the American SAFE Act, which would have paused all resettlement of vulnerable Iraqi and Syrian refugees to the United States. This represents a triumph of American values; as a country, we must uphold our longstanding commitment to protecting those fleeing persecution and violence.

We are extremely grateful to all the IRAP supporters who raised their voices in recent weeks to stand up for resettlement. Thank you, on behalf of hundreds of IRAP clients who would have been affected by this bill.
