Congressman Peters Fundraiser at Dr. Basha’s House
April 18, 2013 by TMO
Congressman Gary peters express deep concern about the unfolding humanitarian crisis in Syria. He attended a reception given by Muslim friends in Farmington hill Michigan. He says People all over the world have watched with awe as democratic movements in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya have risen up against autocratic and corrupt regimes. We have witnessed humanity at its best, as people have shown the courage and bravery to peacefully protest in the face of violence. We have also unfortunately witnessed humanity at its worst, as desperate governments have lashed out in an effort to preserve their rule. The Syrian government has historically been one of the most repressive in the Middle East, so it should be no surprise that the Syrian people have protested the many abuses they are subjected to. Hundreds of those protesters have tragically been killed at the hands of Syrian government forces, and thousands more have been detained. The human rights violations of the Syrian government must be condemned and the Syrian people should be allowed to exercise their fundamental freedoms. Congressman Peters acknowledges different contribution of immigrant people in united states. He expressed his full hearted support for immigration reform.
