Refugees and displaced persons are among the most vulnerable populations in the world, and they deserve the protection of governments who can afford to take them. Expressing the House’s support for refugees and the refugee resettlement program would help achieve this goal.
This toothless resolution wouldn’t change current administration policy on the topic of refugee admissions. If the House is serious about this issue, it should pass actual legislation, not a non-binding resolution. It’s also worth considering if it’s advisable for the U.S. to admit more refugees in the light of the security risks they might pose.
