Congratultions to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on publicly saying that he’ll take in more Syrian refugees. We must stop the hate coming from people across the river in New Jersey like Governor Chris Christie saying he wouldn’t even take in a five-year old.
From the Huffington Post:
“We will welcome the Syrian families to make homes and new lives in our cities,” wrote the mayors, all of whom are part of the Cities United for Immigration Action coalition. “Indeed, we are writing to say that we stand ready to work with your Administration to do much more and to urge you to increase still further the number of Syrian refugees the United States will accept for resettlement.”
“This is a challenge we can meet, and the undersigned mayors stand ready to help you meet it,” they wrote.
Not all Syrians are terrorists. When 9/11 happened did we deport every Saudi Arabian person? No.
