Israel pressured the US in 1989 to stop granting automatic refugee status to Jews from Russia who wanted to emigrate, because Israel wanted them. The US complied. Sadly, many of these Russian emigrants would have had a better life in the US where they would not be treated as second class citizens for not being Halachically Jewish. I wish the US would retroactively grant them refugee status.
