Senator Chris Murphy just sent an email with this quote:
“We are a VERY generous nation, always have been, but there is a double standard in our foreign policy today. When America sets a military objective, we allocate every single dollar we need to accomplish that mission. But when it’s a humanitarian objective, we only put in a share and expect others to fill the gap. That approach comes at a very real human cost in the region, and ultimately, to our credibility around the world.”
He is asking us to contact our senators to support and co-sponsor a bill for emergency appropriations to provide humanitarian relief to Syrian refugees, Senate Bill 2145, the Middle East Refugee Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act.
