Human Rights First is campaigning on behalf of Iraqis who have helped the American forces. They tell me, by email:
In a recent memo, U.S. ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker said the United States must act more quickly to help desperate Iraqi refugees find safety – "Iraqis who have put themselves and their families at risk by working with us."We are not yet at the point of a Parliamentary vote in Britain - which is a disgrace. But there will be a meeting held in Parliament on October 9th. Dan Hardie has the details.
Fortunately, there is a bipartisan amendment in the Senate that will help bring some of these Iraqis—and other vulnerable Iraqi refugees—to safety in the United States.
A vote is imminent – and we expect it to be incredibly close. To ensure it passes, we need YOUR HELP today. Your emails will be counted.
Please make sure your MP knows about this and press him to attend.
