Pro-Refugee REFUGE FOR THOSE IN NEED
Pro-refugee means that we acknowledge the depth of crisis many in the world face and act in accordance with our values to bring safety and security to those in greatest need.
To be pro-refugee is to affirm the values and to participate in the uniquly American invitation of affording others the chance to find a home and country where they may be safe from harm and free to prosper. It is to recognize and revere the equal humanity and image of God in all people, especially those in greatest need.
Pro-Security ROBUST NATIONAL SECURITY
Pro-Security means that we are security-conscious in all aspects of refugee resettlement.
We understand that complex issues pertaining to security, both domestically and internationally, are inherent to the Refugee Resettlement Process and believe that a proper security vetting procedure for refugees is vital to ensure safe communities at home and sustainable resettlement initiatives for the future.
Pro-Economy ECONOMICALLY PROSPEROUS COMMUNITIES
Pro-economy means that we strategically resettle refugees in communities where the economic impact will be positive.
For the past 40 years the data has shown that refugees consistently make a positive and measurable economic impact in communities where they resettle. And strategically investing in refugees can produce even higher economic gains in local communities where labor needs are at their highest.
