Anti-Immigrant Nominee for Refugee Bureau Must Not be Confirmed

The Trump Administration’s nomination of Ronald Mortensen to be Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration, is inappropriate and would be a devastating blow to refugees around the world escaping violence and persecution.

Mortensen is currently a fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies, an extreme anti-immigrant group with ties to racists and that disseminates the work of white nationalist writers. Mortensen himself has a history of hateful anti-immigrant rhetoric, criticizing Dreamers and accusing undocumented immigrants of “destroying the lives of American men, women, and children.”

Tell Senate Leadership: Vote NO on Mortensen

We, the undersigned, have grave concerns about the nomination of anti-immigrant Ronald Mortensen to be Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration.
