Slamming the door on Syrian refugees was the umpteenth cynical, self-serving vote you’ve cast. After working hard to help you in 2012, the previous such votes were disappointing.
This one was far worse.
As you know, my help included recruiting Syrian American friends to support you. They did so generously.
Is locking their friends and family members out of America your way of thanking them? It sure seems so.
Did you give them any thought when casting your vote? Did you consider asking them for their input? Did you not realize they have loved ones in Syria with shattered futures and lives in peril, desperately hoping to join them here in America?
And you voted to dash those hopes? Really? For the pathetic reason that you feared the political repercussions of casting a less cowardly vote?
My friends trusted me in 2012 when I asked that they support you.
And now you’ve treated them with unfathomable cruelty and selfishness.
I’m mortified. I’ve apologized and they’ve forgiven me for this, but would they ever trust me again, as they did in 2012? I doubt it.
Your record, in my opinion, just crossed the line from cynical to unconscionable.
