Senator Sessions schedules hearing in Judiciary subcommittee for Wednesday 9/21

Senator Sessions is an advisor to Donald Trump on national security and immigration.

We have no other details at this time, but the hearing will be at 2:30 p.m. in the Dirksen Senate Office Building room 226.  Visit the Immigration and the National Interest Subcommittee (of the Judiciary Committee) for more information early next week, by clicking here.

See our post of last year about the hearing that is a requirement under the Refugee Act of 1980.

Go here to see if your Senator is on this all-important subcommittee.

Sessions counterpart in the House, chairman of the House Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security, is Rep. Trey Gowdy.  We will be looking for a hearing to follow there before the new fiscal year begins on October 1.

See (click here) if your Member of Congress is on Gowdy’s subcommittee.  If he is then be sure to contact him and tell him how you feel about the Refugee Admissions Program.

Remember, it will be the Republicans in Congress who determine in the end how many refugees will be placed in your towns beginning in two weeks from tomorrow (NOT Obama!). No money=no refugees!

  5. […] Or, maybe Senator Sessions could wring it out of the USCIS for his hearing tomorrow. […]

    There are now 2 articles posted on NumbersUSA about Obama’s 2017 refugee proposal, as well as an “action item” FAX that members can send to their congressional reps. Even if your rep is not on the Immigration and National Interest Subcommittee, they will be voting on the budget so it wouldn’t hurt to send them a message. It is easy to join NumbersUSA (free) which is an organization devoted to reducing immigration levels, both legal and illegal.
