Open Hearts & Homes to Syrian Refugees Say Catholic Organizations

National Catholic social justice organizations delivered a letter to Congress on November 19, calling on legislators to "open our hearts and our homes to Syrian refugees of all faiths." This request comes amid statements by Congress members, governors, presidential candidates, and other political leaders, calling for the U.S. to discontinue refugee re-settlement of Syrian refugees.
