The House of Representatives passed HR 4038, a bill that would effectively reject humanitarian efforts and close the doors to Syrian and Iraqi refugees. Our country is repeating the same mistakes of the past when we closed the doors to Jews fleeing the Nazi regime and punished Japanese Americans for actions that they were not responsible for.
We need true leadership at this time of crisis where we join the international community against the common enemy terrorizing our nations. By closing our doors, we are not only victimizing families in need, but we lose credibility around the world with this hateful and divisive piece of legislation. This bill only divides and increases fear.
The Campaign to TAKE ON HATE, led by the National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC), a program of ACCESS, urges you to please contact your U.S. Senator through our form and urge them to stop this irresponsible bill. Ask your Senator to uphold our American values by welcoming refugees and not discriminating against certain ethnicities or religions.
Join us in demanding that they stand with the millions of Americans who support and welcome refugees. Please click here to send a letter today!
