Care for the refugees

Dear Editor,

I am writing in regard to the Syrian War refugees (the largest refugee crisis since WWII) and to the Republican governors who do not want to take any of the refugees, who are mainly orphans and widows. Only 2 percent are young males, according to CBS News.

Also, in Congress, they voted down taking any of the refugees unless they go through lengthy security checks. I just wonder, what would Jesus do? Is that the Christian way? Of course not. Read your Bible Republicans in Congress and governors. Let us show compassion, love and understanding. The refugees risk their lives to get away from the insanity of war.Civilians, women, children and the elderly are always the ones that suffer the most.

So, don’t give me a speech on family values and believing in God, Republicans.
