The Advocates Supports the GRACE Act

March 25, 2021

The Advocates supports the Guaranteed Refugee Admissions Ceiling Enhancement (GRACE) Act. 

  • Sponsor: Rep. Zoe Lofgren 
  • Date Introduced: 3/26/21
  • Bill Numbers: H.R. 2237 

Overview: Would protect and restore the U.S. resettlement program by setting a minimum refugee admissions goal to 125,000 and increasing congressional oversight over the administration's operations of the resettlement program.

AHR supports: ensuring refugee admissions are in-line with our obligations under international law and our values as a nation.  By setting a minimum, default number for admissions, the bill will help avert opportunities for the Executive to reduce admissions and violate international law through inaction.
