Evangelicals say yes to Syrian refugees: Jarvis DeBerry

World Relief,which calls itself the “biggest evangelical refugee resettlement agency in America” is urging political leaders around the country — many of whom consistently court evangelical votes — to support the resettling of Syrian refugees in this country.

Politico.com quotes World Relief’s vice president Jenny Yang who says that talk of shutting such refugees out “does not reflect what we’ve been hearing from our constituencies, which are evangelical churches across the country.”

To the contrary. She said, “Most of the people have been saying we want to continue to work with refugees, that what happened in Paris … doesn’t reflect who refugees are.”
World Relief has also created a website, wewelcomerefugees.com/advocate, that encourages people to contact their political leaders and express their concern for the safety of Syrian refugees and to express their disappointment in the anti-refugee rhetoric that’s emerged since Paris.
