Thank you, Governor Brown

We are concerned about the backlash in the United States for the ISIS attack on Paris.  We must take a stand to counter the fear, the terror, and the emotionalism of uninformed Oregonians who equate the attackers with all Muslims.  We thank you for your effort to inform Oregonians that the asylum-seekers are also fleeing ISIS and terrorism.  And for your commitment that as Oregonians and Americans who have strong values in offering sanctuary to refugees from violence, we must offer sanctuary to these refugees.
