President Trump has already done something despicable with the 2020 refugee cap. 18,000? Seriously? Doing this is stranding refugees in unsafe places, and hurting other countries. Sometimes, a refugee seeking asylum in one country may be less safe there than in their home country! We are forcing them into a place where they are not safe, and not letting them come to the US. Well, we're letting 18,000 of them come to the US all year. To put that in perspective, that's about 50 people a day. Out of the millions of refugees out there. That means that every day, we are letting millions of refugees suffer for no good reason. And the arguments about refugees being "unsafe?" Believe it or not, fewer crimes are committed by refugees than by American-born citizens, and even if the incoming refugees were going to commit crimes, with the 2-year screening process they have to go through first, how will they even get in? Refugees help our country. They don't hurt it. The amount that refugees contribute to the economy by starting businesses surpasses the amount of money that it takes to help refugees settle in. Also, for all they contribute to our economy, having millions of them in Lebanon is not helping them. If we let this many refugees stay there, it could drastically hurt their country. In fact, It already is. However, if the US and Europe let in more refugees, it could lend a hand to a struggling nation

Now, if you're not convinced to sign for political or economic reasons, sign for the people. Sign for the families. Sign for the children. Help them have a safe place to live by bringing next year's refugee cap up to 100,000!
