Reminder! These are the House members who should be automatically on the side of DEFUNDING the Refugee Admissions Program

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 26, 2016

At least they should support any effort in the lame duck session of Congress coming up a week after the election to defund the program until certain problems have been resolved—primarily the weak screening process—and to pause the program as a new administration comes into office in the new year.

Don’t forget, the Obama Administration is working quickly right now to front end the huge flow of refugees Obama wants for FY17.

Here is what I said in September and it still applies (with updates!):

In my previous post I told you that it is not too late to tell key members of Congress to protect your towns by cutting funding in the Final Budget for FY2017 for refugee admissions for 2017 from terror-producing regions of the world and elsewhere which must be passed before Congress recesses for Christmas.

This is the House calendar as it stands right now. Check out how little they actually work! They will be back on the 14th of November and the 2017 Budget must be done by December 9th. And, btw, the 2017 fiscal year began on October 1st, so they are already way behind (as usual)!

Those likely to be on the side of making America safe again are House Freedom Caucus members listed below.

Those crossed off signed on to the earlier Babin/Brat letter but be sure to contact them again to urge them to join a new effort in November.

Again, those crossed off below have already taken a brave position, but focus your calls on all Freedom Caucus members. Tell them to check in with Rep. Brian Babin’s (R-TX) office to see what the plan is for the lame duck.

Only 13 days left before the election to get a commitment from them!
