Approximately 400 people gathered on Delmar Boulevard on Sunday evening for STL for Syria’s #BringThemHere march, which called for the government to accept as many Syrian refugees as possible into St. Louis.

 

Photos went viral in early September of a young Syrian boy washed up on a Turkish beach. The boy, along with his brother and mother, had drowned while trying to flee from Turkey to the Greek Island of Kos, sparking debate about immigration policies surrounding an ongoing and escalating Syrian refugee crisis.

The ongoing crisis in Syria is the worst humanitarian crisis since WWII. Hundreds of thousands of people have been murdered, millions are either internally or externally displaced, hundreds of thousands are living in tent cities for years, while thousands drown in the sea or are brutalized while trying to flee to Europe. The United Nations is encouraging the United States to accept 65,000 Syrian refugees by 2016. So far the U.S. has accepted less then 1,000
