Rally in support of welcoming Syrian refugees into Washington State

SEATTLE, Wash.—A rally in downtown Seattle on Saturday was in support of Governor Jay Inslee’s decision to welcome Syrian refugees into Washington State.

“As a nation of immigrants, we are stronger by allowing them in. We are a stronger nation and a better nation for putting our hand out to those in their time of need. If we fail to do that, we are playing directly into what ISIS wants,” said Ben Wiselogle.

President Barack Obama has pledged to welcome 10,000 Syrian refugees into the United States.
