Representative Maxine Waters (D, Calif.) criticized President Trump on Sunday for temporarily banning Syrain refugees and pushed a MoveOn.org petition supporting the admittance of 100,000 refugees to the United States.
During a Sunday phone call with the George-Soros-funded MoveOn.org, Waters contended that if Trump “really cared about the plight of Syrian children … he would rescind his executive order banning Syrian refugees.”
Waters condemned Trump’s proposed budget cuts, arguing that they do not help Syrian children, then promoted the MoveOn.org petition.
An executive order signed by the president in January indefinitely restricts Syrian refugees from entering the United States.
According to MoveOn.org’s petition, the Trump administration “has attempted to slam the doors entirely on Syrian refugees and gut funding for international aid and diplomacy.”
Nearly 900 people have signed the petition which demands that the United States “must match the generous and humanitarian impulses of the American people and live up to our international responsibilities” by “expediting the acceptance and resettlement of 100,000 Syrian refugees.”
