Human Rights TRUMP Oppression: Solidarity with Iraqi and Syrian Refugees
On November 19, the House of Representative passed a bill (H.R. 4038) that would effectively bar Syrian and Iraqi refugees from entering the country. This was one of the many public examples of the recent, recurring Islamophobic, Arabphobic, and xenophobic attacks against the Muslim members of our community.
In light of these events, we are organizing a rally to express our solidarity with Syrian and Iraqi migrants who are seeking refuge in the United States. The right to seek refuge (or asylum) in another country is an enshrined human right under international law. #HRTrumpsOppression#StandUp4Syrians #StandUp4Iraqis
