Senate: Reject Any Politics that Targets People Because of Religion

Reject any politics that targets people because of race or religion. Reject any effort to block Syrian and Iraqi refugees from being admitted to the United States.

Why is this important?

In his final State of the Union address, President Obama called on Americans to "reject any politics that targets people because of race or religion," [1] widely reported as a slam on the anti-Muslim, anti-refugee politics of Republican presidential frontrunners Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. [2]

But apparently Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell didn't get the memo. McConnell is insisting that the Senate vote to end the admission of Syrian and Iraqi refugees to the United States. [3]

Urge the Senate to reject any politics that targets people because of race or religion, including any blanket ban on the admission of Syrian and Iraqi refugees to the United States, by signing our petition.
