In a letter, over 50 former national security and foreign policy officials, as well as leaders in the NGO community, called upon Congress to resist administration proposals to dramatically cut U.S. humanitarian assistance. The letter also urges the Congress to protect the key role of the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM).
