From S. Williams, Ryde:

I have been surprised in recent years just how many people are blinded and do not seem to put themselves in the shoes of the refugees who feel they have no other choice but to risk their lives to come to this country only to be met with such prejudice and rejection.

Wouldn’t we all want a safe place for our children? These people are absolutely desperate. They are running from war and persecution. We should all try to imagine (if we can?) what they are going through.

Some lose their children trying to get here. How horrendous would that be? I’m sick to death of all the moaning about refugees.

We should show them compassion not prejudice.
