MoveOn.org thinks so.
MoveOn.org has a petition to accept more "refugees" from Syria and elsewhere. This is what the petition states:
There is a refugee crisis happening right now and the U.S. needs to show leadership and kindness by accepting these refugees from Syria and elsewhere. Germany is accepting 800,000 refugees while we are only accepting in the few thousands. We have the wealth to do it, so let's do it!
That last line gets me. We have the wealth? Is MoveOn not aware of our debt, deficiet, and unemployment rate? Do they not know how many people are already on food stamps?
The crazy thing is they almost have the 75,000 signatures needed! But that is MoveOn's threshold.
So let us look at the White House's petition board.
Yup. There is a petition there too, but it needs a total of 100,000 signatures by Sept 30th and is about 12,000 away from the goal. It calls to resettle 65,000 refugees. This will only get a response from the White House, not legislation.
Could be worse, and it is! This petition wants to let in 140,000 refugees! It has an October 3rd deadline and is 99,000 signatures away.
This petition wants to allow the refugees to apply for citizenship after 1,000 days instead of 5 years.
Does anyone believe in protecting our interests?
This petition calls for blocking refugees from Syria and other Gulf states. It only has 365 of the needed 100,000 signatures with a deadline of October 12th.
Sign it now!
