Together we can care for the people Trump won't

This petition had 4,608 supporters

President Trump’s Executive Order has shirked US responsibility to protect men, women and children seeking safety. 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.

The US government has decided not to pull its weight and take on its share of the global responsibility to protect people in danger. We are calling on countries around the world including Australia to step up and share responsibility where President Trump won’t.

While it’s promising that Australia offers safety to 13,750 people each year, we have the ability to open our arms to more. Sign the petition and call on Minister Dutton to increase the refugee program to 30,000 people who need our help each year.
