In a joint letter, over 180 civil society and faith-based organizations, including the International Catholic Migration Commission and its national member, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, are urging the U.S. Administration to resettle 95,000 refugees in the fiscal year 2021 (Oct. 2020 – Sep. 2021). The letter argues this number has been the norm since 1980 and cites refugees’ contributions to American society since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis.
