Trump Impact on the Refugee Resettlement Effort

Please join the ACLU of Wisconsin Fox Valley Chapter for this event!

Every year the U.S. invites up to 70,000 refugees to make a home and seek a new life here through a process called resettlement. World Relief’s network of regional offices and partners resettle approximately 10% of all those refugees entering the United States. How have the Executive Orders of the Trump administration impacted resettlement efforts and what are we expecting in 2018? Tami McLaughlin*, Director of World Relief Fox Valley will be addressing those questions and more at this special event.
