Refugees; persecuted for group or political beliefs Julia Paskale Period 1

Prostests against refugee persecution: both refugees, and their supporters to be let into America attend.

Article 1-"Syrian Christian refugees persecuted" http://www.thewhig.com/2016/04/03/syrian-christian-refugees-persecutedy Article lead: "The complicated civil war in Syria has created a vast refugee crisis, displacing millions of people, including Christians fleeing Islamic State forces that are bent on exterminating them."-summary lead. My lead: How would you feel if you were discriminated for practicing your religion? Millions of refugees are fleeing their home country on account of this persecution, and are navigating where they can find a new home. Article conclusion: "However, the Open Doors representative said that "the important thing is to ensure that Christians are receiving fair rations, are not in the back of the line and feel safe while living with other residents. Additionally, it is vital to look at the big picture and future so all refugees aren't living in camps for several years." Conclusion 2-me There are an assortment of states around the U.S. and other countries that are letting Syrian refugees in, some of which are Christian, others are not. Although they are dealing with an incomparable amount of strife today, the goal for our world is they will feel safe wherever they go, and not be persecuted for being in a certain group, or their political beliefs tomorrow. Who-refugees from Syria, some of which are Christian, some are not. American people that: persecute these refugees on their differences in group, or politics, Americans that want to help the refugees, Americans that do not want to help the refugees, Americans who decide what shall be done. What: the persecution of Syrian refugees, coming from their political beliefs, and groups. Do we let them into our country or not? That question is being heavily debated!!!!! Why: to inform citizens of the U.S. what is currently going on in the lives of Syrian refugees, what they deal with, and are discriminated for, and for us to see what it is like to walk in their shoes. We want to give our support to innocent refugees who had their previous lives taken away from them, not regulate the fact that we believe they are bad people because some people of their race have done bad things to our country, or other countries in the past. When: 2017, right at this very moment we need to change these people's lives for the greater good of the world, and give them a shoulder to lean on, and stop pointing out their differences, and let them into our country to become one of us. Where: from Syria, to the United States, to the rest of the world. How: Syria has had war for 4 years, of which has caused many of its citizens to flee out to other countries, thus giving the immigrants a need of a place to live. Since America is viewed as the most wealthy, adventurous, and dream accomplishing country in the world, it is no wonder why these refugees believe that it would be a glorious place to live. Some of these victims are Christian, and can be despised for that, however we should overlook what others may not like them for, and love them for standing out.

Article 2-"Key facts about refugees to the U.S." http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2017/01/30/key-facts-about-refugees-to-the-u-s/ Article lead: "An executive order signed Jan. 27 by President Donald Trump suspends refugee admissions for 120 days while security procedures are reviewed, though the resettlement of persecuted religious minorities may continue during this time on a case-by-case basis. Under the plan, the maximum number of refugees allowed into the U.S. in fiscal 2017 will likely decline from 110,000 to 50,000. Separately, admission of Syrian refugees will be suspended pending a revision of security screening measures." Lead style: delayed identification. Lead 2-me: Newly elected President Donald J. Trump placed a travel ban on Syrian Refugees on January 27, 2017. These immigrants have been turned on by this global leader, and are being persecuted for both their ethnic group, and political beliefs."-Single item lead. Conclusion from article-"U.S. public opinion polls from previous decades show Americans have largely opposed admitting large numbers of refugees from countries where people are fleeing war and oppression." Rewording-me With given proof shown in polling, we can see that America hasn't always had the backs of refugees in the past few decades. With many possible arrangements, and understandings confirmed in our government and through our enchantingly diverse society, we can form a nation that will house refugees, and give them a place to live that is away from the heart shattering, bomb dropping place they once knew as home. Who-refugees from Syria, some of which are Christian, some are not. American people that: persecute these refugees on their differences in group, or politics, Americans that want to help the refugees, Americans that do not want to help the refugees, Americans who decide what shall be done. What: the persecution of Syrian refugees, coming from their political beliefs, and groups. Do we let them into our country or not? That question is being heavily debated!!!!! Why: to inform citizens of the U.S. what is currently going on in the lives of Syrian refugees, what they deal with, and are discriminated for, and for us to see what it is like to walk in their shoes.

Put yourself into the refugees' shoes. How must they feel on a regular day? Possibly scared, unwanted, depressed, confused, alone, in danger, angry, upset, helpless, insecure, unbalanced, victimized, and more.
