ACTION: Call to Let Refugees In

From Indivisible Oregon...

**CALL TO ACTION**
Thursday, April 13, 2017

LET REFUGEES IN
——————————————————————————————
On March 6, 2017 President Trump signed an executive order to place a temporary ban on visas from six Muslim majority countries and barred any refugees from entering the United States for 120 days. http://bit.ly/2lwCL4j
A month later, Trump responded to a chemical weapons attack the Assad regime launched against its own people, by authorizing air strikes in Syria. http://cnn.it/2oLHdgt Specifically citing the “loss of life of innocent men, women and children”, President Trump justified this mission as “vital to our national security”. http://nyti.ms/2nCSfVe Bombing Syria under the pretense of a humanitarian mission is the height of hypocrisy while the United States refuses to accept victims suffering under the Assad dictatorship. 
HR 1503 (SOLVE Act 2.0) and S 608 would revoke the Muslim Ban 2.0 and allow Syrian refugees to enter our country. Some of our Members of Congress are supporting this legislation – but they can do more. As Hillary Clinton said at the Women in the World conference, “We cannot in one breath speak of pro-tecting Syrian babies and in the next close American doors to them.” http://cnn.it/2nTRfrX)
