Urge the U.S. government to accept more Syrian refugees

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

There is a refugee crisis happening right now and the U.S. needs to show leadership and kindness by accepting these refugees from Syria and elsewhere. Germany is accepting 800,000 refugees while we are only accepting in the few thousands. We have the wealth to do it, so let's do it!
There are currently 77,421 signatures. NEW goal - We need 100,000 signatures!

Petition Background

I think we're all disturbed by the danger people are undertaking on their journeys to Europe and the amount of deaths we have witnessed is heartbreaking. And now, seeing images of dead children washing ashore is unacceptable and has convinced me that we need to do something to help.
