3. Action Alert: Support Legislation to Protect Vulnerable Refugees and \nAsylum Seekers

\n

Urge your Representative to support H.R. 5918 and protect innocent refugees \nand asylum seekers from becoming unintended victims of the war on terrorism! \nCertain overly broad provisions in the PATRIOT Act and the REAL ID Act have in \npractice worked to deny protection to vulnerable refugees and asylum seekers. \nThe "material support" provisions affect anyone who has given any amount of \nmoney, goods or assistance to any armed group — including groups resisting \noppressive regimes and factions that extort such assistance with threats of \nviolence. In practical terms, our government is denying safety and freedom to \nrefugees and asylum seekers who, before the current provisions, would clearly \nhave qualified for protection. “,1]
