Work to end the civil war and refugee crisis in Syria

It took years of patient diplomacy to secure the Iran peace accord and prevent a war with Iran.  In Syria, the war has been going on for over four years.  Our government must take urgent and immediate action, working with all key stakeholders in the region to end this terrible war.

President Obama and Congress should significantly increase the number of Syrian refugees allowed to come to the U.S., fully fund UN refugee programs to help Syrian refugees, reject calls for military escalation including bombing, arms transfers and imposition of a “no fly zone,” intensify efforts to implement a ceasefire, and engage immediately in negotiations with all involved parties, including Russia and Iran, to end the Syrian civil war with a political agreement.
