GRRM: Syrian Refugees Are Also Victims Of ISIS, ‘Let Them In’

grrm syrian refugeesJust like Jon Snow, who wanted to keep wildlings safe from white walkers by bringing them south of The Wall, George R.R. Martin wants the same for Syrian Refugees, he wrote on his website.

“The words on her base (Statue of Liberty) represent the best of what this nation of immigrants is all about. One has to wonder if all the governors (including our own governor here in New Mexico, I am ashamed to say) and congressmen voting to keep out the Syrian refugees have ever visited the Statue, or read the words on her base. If so, they surely failed to understand them. Emma Lazarus (The New Colossus) had it right. Donald Trump and thirty-one governors have it wrong, wrong, wrong. The Syrian refugees are as much victims of ISIS as the dead in France. Let them in.”

In the aftermath of Paris attacks, 27 Republican governors recently wrote to President Obama, requesting him to “suspend all plans to resettle additional Syrian refugees.”
