Tell the U.S. Senate: Don't slam the door on refugees
FOUR MILLION children, women, and families have fled from war-torn Syria to ESCAPE violent extremism, NOT to spread it. But right-wing Republicans and some Democrats are being overpowered by fear and bigotry -- not logic, tolerance, and goodwill. They refuse to even consider allowing refugees to enter the United States, and are fast-tracking legislation to slam our doors on those who need refuge most!
To these extremists in Congress, facts don’t matter. The facts are that refugees undergo a rigorous screening process that can take up to THREE YEARS, and not one terrorist attack has been committed in the U.S. by a refugee!
This is the same dangerous line of thinking that leads to hate crimes and wars. Don't let our leaders toss aside our American values due to panic and paranoia.
SIGN THE PETITION to tell your U.S. Senators:
"Stand with President Obama and do not turn your back on children, women, and families seeking safety from war-torn Syria. Vote “NO” on any legislation that would halt or otherwise interrupt the acceptance of refugees into the U.S."
