David Cameron must follow Germany's lead in offering sanctuary to more asylum seekers than currently promised, from Syria, as well as from Iraq, and Afghanistan.
Why is this important?
Britain has paid a part in destabilizing all of these areas. We have a moral imperative to take in refugees from conflict in these regions, albeit at a cost to ourselves and at the Conservative Party's cost to their political popularity. Refusing sanctuary to these asylum seekers enables and legitimizes human trafficking. Britain's current stance of taking so few refugees is a shameful disgrace. Children continue to suffocate and drown while Britain complacently and self-centredly looks the other way.
