There has been a mass exodus of people from Syria since the Assad regimes chemical attack in August 2013 and the subsequent “Chemical Weapons” deal between the US, Russia and the Assad regime. Today, there are approximately 5 million Syrian refugees and a further 6.5 million forcibly displaced within Syria. Yet, since then, the US has accepted only about 14,000 Syrian refugees. I call on the United States Congress to rapidly increase the acceptance of refugees fleeing the war in Syria, to expedite their acceptance, and to ensure safe passage on their entire journey.
