Please America, such a moment as this is when we must remember where we came from and who we are. Let us continue to be the refuge that those before us sought and found. And open the doors more.

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Do not give in to fear. Keep and strengthen our values.  Do not abandon the world’s most vulnerable people who need our strength and protection the most.

Let us give them a safe harbor.hon5

……………This makes the growing backlash against the resettlement of Syrian refugees—three-quarters of whom are women and children—all the more disappointing. More than two dozen governors—including Gov. Snyder—have issued statements of dubious legal authority calling for an end to Syrian resettlement plans; members of Congress—including Sen. Graham—have followed suit. In the span of just a few hours, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R), herself the child of immigrants, first resisted the movement to close her state to Syrian refugees then reversed course…..

Infographic: The Screening Process for Entry to the United States for Syrian Refugees……….

Syrian refugees face a long security screening process before being admitted for entry to the United States. Averaging 18 months to 24 months, the process is the most intensive of any check conducted for people seeking admission to the United States. It is specially designed to mitigate any threats and helps ensure Americans are not placed in harm’s way
