In Europe and in the USA, politicians are refusing the right to asylum to refugees .
In the USA, Trump’s policy is to reverse the DACA, and to refuse the entry on the US territory to migrants ; even children are separated from their parents and incarcerated.
In Europe, the right to asylum is violated, too.Those who reached their goal sleep in streets :
Migrants , who are actually numerous from Syria and Libya, find closed frontiers .
Amnesty Belgium issued a petition in favor of migrants, in search of a shelter in Europe ; the link is below :
The UNHCR has an action in favor of refugees, #WithRefugees. The petition is here:
Yes, in the USA and in Europe, the crisis is global.
Syrians left their country to find a shelter elsewhere and everywhere they are refused.
This policy is contrary to the Refugees Convention, signed by all the lands wich practice this refusal of asylum .

It is a blatant violation of international laws and human rights.
On Twitter today, the hashtag #FamiliesBelongTogether was important.
It concerns Trump’s policy towards migrants , but we can use it towards Europe , too.
Every refugee , by the Refugees Convention, has the right to a safe haven .
We cannot deny it to them .
I write this post to raise my voice in favor of refugees, to affirm their right to asylum, in the USA as in Europe.
The policy towards them is a shame on us.
Yes, in the USA as in Europe, #FamiliesBelongTogether.
