MFA spokesperson F. Murray Abraham urges the U.S. to open its doors to Syrian refugees in his New York Times letter to the editor.
To the Editor:
President Trump can save the remaining beautiful Syrian babies by opening our doors to them. Please do it now.
If America hadn’t welcomed my father’s family fleeing from a terrible famine in Syria, they would have all died. My father taught us to be grateful and loyal in return.
We are proud Syrian-Americans. We should welcome those seeking refuge now from the terrible atrocities of the Syrian war to become proud Syrian-Americans as well.
