Automatically extend work authorization and visa renewal deadlines for refugees and immigrants who are providing economic and recovery assistance to our country … Appropriate $642 million in supplemental funding for the Office of Refugee Resettlement.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
