Democracy For America

Save the refugees: Tell Democrats to allow more Syrian families to come to the U.S.

Refugees are suffering and dying because governments in Europe, as well as our own, won't open their doors to take these families in.

It doesn't have to be this way. The United States government has said it will only take 8,000 Syrian refugees -- and so far, only 1,541 have arrived. That's not enough. We have to do better.

Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley said we must do more. He's called on the US to accept at least 65,000 Syrian refugees by the end of 2016.

He's right. Add your name to our petition to all the Democratic presidential candidates -- ask them to match or exceed O'Malley's proposal to bring more Syrian refugees to America.
