MWFpress - US activists have urged people to stand with refugees.
The American activists have asked people to join the campaign to support and welcome more refugees to the country.

Members of the NGO asked people to join the campaign and demand their senators to support the GRACE Act.

The official website of the campaign wrote: “After setting the refugee admissions ceiling at just 30,000 refugees in FY19 – the lowest in modern history – the US administration has only welcomed 14,854 refugees seven months into the fiscal year. At this rate, the administration will resettle only about 70% of the 30,000 goal - a goal which pales in comparison to the historic average commitment of 95,000 refugees annually.”
