We can't turn our backs on Syrian refugees
The House just voted to strand Syrian refugees, 75 percent of whom are women and children. Many of these women and young girls are escaping sexual violence, forced marriages, honor killings, and more under ISIS rule. They are fleeing terrorism, not bringing it, and need shelter and safety, not fear-mongering and racism. Alarmingly, the bill passed by enough votes to override the veto President Obama promised--and with the votes of 47 Democrats along with every single House Republican. Senate Republicans only need 13 Democrats to override a presidential veto, and they're likely to get them, unless we quickly speak out. Can you sign this urgent petition demanding Senate Democrats stand with women refugees?
