In countries where people have to flee their homes because of persecution and violence, political solutions must be found, peace and tolerance restored, so that refugees can return home. In my experience, going home is the deepest wish of most refugees.

ANGELINA JOLIE, BBC News interview, Apr. 8, 2004

The exile is a singular, whereas refugees tend to be thought of in the mass ... What is implied in these nuances of social standing is the respect we pay to choice. The exile appears to have made a decision, while the refugee is the very image of helplessness.

MARY MCCARTHY, Occasional Prose

We are all part of the human family and we should be about doing what all good families do - caring for our less fortunate brothers and sisters.
- Dan O'Neill, Founder, Mercy Corps

So often the world sits idly by, watching ethnic conflicts flare up, as if these were mere entertainment rather than human beings whose lives are being destroyed. Shouldn't the existence of even one single refugee be a cause for alarm throughout the world?
-- Urkhan Alakbarov

This is important to me because I have family member that are naturalized citizens from Africa. The rest of my family members that may want to come to migrate here to the U.S. should not be limited due to the whims of our Congressmen/women that are ignorant about immigration reform.

We cannot stay silence any longer and witness to injustice being promoted against other human being just because they are undocumented. For we can't forget that we are all bound by the same respect to the constitution of this great nation, we are all equal, and have rights to the same basic human appeal: the pursuit of happiness.
