We know that the executive actions taken by President Trump create fear and uncertainty, but we assure you that IRCO’s core mission and values remain the same. Our doors will stay open to provide available services for all immigrants and refugees living in Oregon.
The United States is and will always be a nation made better by immigrants and refugees. We strongly urge all Oregonians to remain supportive of those who are persecuted internationally and seek peace, safety and freedom in the United States.
We encourage everyone to get involved. Start by visiting www.irco.org to donate or volunteer. If you'd like to take action immediately, you can:
1. Call your federal representatives and tell them you support refugee resettlement and resources to help immigrants and refugees. You can find your representatives here: www.govtrack.us/congress/members/OR
2. Tweet @realDonaldTrump & @POTUS – Samples:
@realDonaldTrump & @POTUS Don't stop welcoming refugees. Resettlement demonstrates the best of our values #RefugeesWelcome
@realDonaldTrump & @POTUS Keep America welcoming. Refugee resettlement is a proud American legacy with bipartisan support. #refugeeswelcome
3. Send the White House a Facebook message at Facebook.com/WhiteHouse AND submit an electronic message at whitehouse.gov/contact – Sample:
I oppose the plan to reduce refugee admissions and to prevent Muslim refugees from being resettled in the United States. We urge you to allow the U.S. refugee program to continue to resettle refugees that need our protection regardless of where they come from.
