Refugee organizations wasted no time in capitalizing on the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that stayed two lower courts’ rulings on President Trump’s temporary travel ban. The groups quickly used President Trump’s victory in temporarily banning travel from six Muslim-majority countries to send out fundraising messages.
The New York-based International Rescue Committee (IRC) sent out an email asking for donations which began: “The Supreme Court has reinstated parts of President Trump’s misguided travel ban and the impact on refugee families is immediate and devastating.”
The website for IRC says:
The United States has a long tradition of offering refuge to those fleeing persecution and war. However, the Trump Administration, citing unfounded security concerns, has moved to suspend the refugee resettlement program for 120 days and slash refugee arrivals in 2017 by more than half.
