ELDERLY AND DISABLED REFUGEES NEED OUR HELP

Rate this Entry

As some of you know, I'm on the national board of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, the world's oldest refugee organization. HIAS helped my family when they came to America in the great immigration wave early in the last century and helped my wife's family who came as refugees from the Nazis.



HIAS is just as important today as it was 126 years ago when it was founded. Today it's mission is broader and they focus on issues affecting all immigrant communities. One of the issues it is leading the way on is promoting legislation to allow elderly and disabled immigrants to continue receiving public benefits while they pursue citizenship, something that is now a requirement. The cases of elderly and disabled immigrants who have been cut off from this crucial assistance have been most distressing. Some of our most vulnerable neighbors have been thrown in to horrible poverty.



Here's more information HIAS is providing on this issue and information on how you can help. If you can make some time to contact your member of Congress to tell them to support this legislation, you'll be doing a good deed:

    I have just sent a message to my congressman via your link in support of the bill. Thanks for calling our attention to this.
