Introduced in Senate (06/20/2017)

Reaffirms: (1) the bipartisan commitment of the United States to promote the safety, health, and well-being of refugees; and (2) the goals of World Refugee Day.

Recognizes: (1) individuals who have risked their lives to provide life-saving assistance and protection for people displaced by conflict, and (2) the importance of the U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program as a critical tool for U.S. global leadership.

Calls upon the U.S. government to:

  • continue providing robust funding for refugee protection overseas and resettlement in the United States,
  • uphold its international leadership role in responding to displacement crises with humanitarian assistance and protection of the most vulnerable populations, and
  • alleviate the burden on refugee host countries through humanitarian and development support while maintaining the tradition of resettling the most vulnerable refugees regardless of their country of origin or religious beliefs.

Reiterates the U.S. commitment to seek to protect the millions of refugees who live without material, social, or legal protections.
