Monday, June 20 is World Refugee Day.
As we approach Independence Day, we remember the Iraqi and Syrian refugee families who are seeking a place to call home.
As members of the wealthiest nation on Earth, we Americans—many of whom are descendants of refugees—have a responsibility to relieve the suffering of people who have lost everything: home, livelihood, and human dignity.
May we find a way forward to welcome these families who need our help. We support efforts to welcome some of the world's most vulnerable people and we pledge to support the families who find refuge on our shores.
