Stand up for what makes the US and Australia great

President Trump’s Executive Order has rejected many of the values that our countries share. He's announced a complete ban on Syrian refugees and an indefinite ban on others fleeing danger and more than halved the number of refugees able to start a new life in the US.

This decision goes against the grain of our common values. The values that say we treat people equally and with respect no matter where they come from. We help people in danger, give them a fair go and always lend a hand.

These values are reflected on America’s iconic Statue of Liberty, ‘Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free’.

With the US pulling back from these values we need to demonstrate our strong support for them. Ask Minister Dutton to increase the refugee intake from 13,750 to 30,000 each year so we can help the people in need the US has turned its back on.
