Make a call today!  Oppose the RAISE Act!
Day of Action: Raise Your Voice Against the RAISE Act
This week, CRSA members met with the staff of Senator David Perdue to discuss his co-sponsorship of S. 354, the RAISE Act. This bill aims to cut legal forms of immigration in half over the next ten years. It will do this in multiple ways:
  • Limits refugee arrivals to 50,000 per year.
  • Reduces the number of family-sponsored immigrants allowed, cutting the list of family ties to only include spouses and unmarried children.
  • Ends the diversity visa program, which welcomes 50,000 new Americans annually.
We need you to help convince Senator Perdue to remove his name from co-sponsorship of this anti-welcoming bill!

Call Today: (844) 749-7985

Please take a moment today to call Senator Perdue’s office to ask him to remove his name from this bill. Remind him that you want to keep Georgia, and the United States, as a welcoming place for all refugees and immigrants.
