Dear Prime Minister,

I am writing to you to urge you to publicly condemn the United States Administration's recent Executive Order which will slash refugee resettlement and ban immigrants and refugees based on nationality and religion.

The refugees impacted by this decision are among the world's most vulnerable people - women, children, and men who have fled unfathomable violence and loss.

I call on you to condemn in the strongest possible way this Executive Order and to offer safety to those refugees now denied a safe home in the USA.

I urge you to redouble the UK's commitments to vulnerable refugees by:

1) Making a public statement to condemn the US Executive Order and call for it to be rescinded.

2) Pledging to increase the number of refugees accepted into the UK, including those denied a safe haven in the USA.

Yours sincerely,
