I stand with refugees because I will treat people how I would want to be treated.
Last night I attended Stand to Support Refugees at Christ Church in Lexington. The sanctuary was packed, with standing room only and people lined up outside of sanctuary doors.
I had the opportunity to listen to refugees from Syria, the Congo, and Iraq speak about their dreams to come to the United States. And I listened to them speak about their love for this country.
told us of their sadness and shock as other refugees fleeing for their lives were barred from entering the US as a result of President Trump’s recent band on refugees.
Some of these refugees have been waiting for years to come here.
