I have to say something for because 20 years ago I was the little kid in a war torn country trying to come to America, and if Donald Trump were President instead of Bill Clinton then I wouldn’t be where I am and I wouldn’t know who or where my parents are

The global refugee crisis confronts us with a predicament of modern political thought — modern liberalism even. Think about it from behind the Veil of Ignorance. Secure our nations but have compassion.

Despite Mike Pompeo’s insistence to the contrary, on , the US is accepting the lowest amount of refugees in 40 years. Once a “Shining Light on the Hill,” this light has dimmed for those seeking refuge from violence and oppression. We must be better, America!

For me is for my Nene, Dede and mum. They fled persecution in Cyprus and found a home in the Eastend, 1971. They’re the lucky ones.

My parents came here when my mom was pregnant with me. They spoke no English. My dad worked 14 hour days and when he came home, he and my mom would search the parking lot for coins to pay for water and food. Nobody is illegal.

Let’s remember that Abraham, Moses, Jesus & Muhammad (peace be upon them) were all refugees at one point in their lives. Those who claim to follow them should not shut the doors in the face of refugees.

I was born a runner, looking for a safer refugee! I found home. Thank you Canada 🇨🇦 for making that simple dream a reality. For being an open society with welcoming spirit. This is our strength.

The Irish weren't welcome; the Italians weren't welcome; the Jews weren't welcome - we've been through this before. The Statue of Liberty's plaque ends 'I lift my lamp beside the golden door' ...

Coming from a family that was displaced twice by their own neighbours... I hope more people realize how important it is that refugees and immigrants are allowed to live in safe places. Especially in places like North America. People are not illegal.

Way back in 1999 my family and I left a Croatian refugee camp that was populated by Western Bosnians who were fleeing the Bosnian War. 19 years later my parent's sacrifices are paying off as we live and value the freedoms we have here. To the US, thank you.

My grandparents were refugees. My husband’s grandparents were refugees. They came with nothing. From them, we have had the good fortune and opportunity to build happy, healthy, productive lives. ‘Refugees’ are just people, hoping for a better future.

My daughters are standing with me and my wife as we stand with refugees. I wish I could tell you all the stories we've come across as we eat and talk with refugees from Syria, Congo, Myanmar and around the world. It's changed our lives

My heart breaks into a million pieces for anyone forced to move and separate from their loved ones. Celebrating their resilience and hope. A reminder for us all to do and be better.

I'm thinking about the people I met in desperate situations around the world. The young woman held in detention in Nauru. The father in a camp in Erbil. The children in Za'atari. And all the others. We must do better for our fellow humans.

Julian Assange is my hero. He inspires me to read more, respect human rights and to fight imperialism. He gives me hope for humanity.
