Omnibus spending bill is the most important target to rein-in refugee program!
Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 30, 2015
It is also the hardest to accomplish, but this—the power of the purse—is the real Constitutional power that Congress has (if they would learn to use it).
There is much you can do this week and you must get involved because the NO borders pushers in the resettlement industry are reeling right now (scroll back through posts over the last few days).
To save me time since it has been so carefully presented by fellow blogger Richard Falknor at Blue Ridge Forum, click here, and read about Texas Rep. Brian Babin’s efforts in the House to attach a spending curb on the so-called “Omnibus” budget bill that must be voted on before December 11th (or the government shuts down).
The effort must start in the House, but we expect Senator Jeff Sessions and others to be involved in the Senate.
Go here to learn more and to see the 73 brave Members of Congress who have already signed on!
If you can only do one thing this week, this is it! Pound your Member of Congress!
If yours is not among the 73, please let them know how important this issue is to you (the refugee industry is pulling out all the stops to make sure they stay in business.)
Action Alert: Call you members of the House and Senate at 202-224-3121 and ask them to vigorously oppose the Refugee Resettlement funding contained in the Omnibus Spending Bill that will be voted on by 12-11-15! Please call by this Friday, Dec. 4th.
