“Immigration and refugee policy is an important part of our past and fundamental to our national interest.”
Former US President Ronald Reagan
“No one puts their children in a boat unless the water is safer than the land.”
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”
“Refugees are mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children, with the same hopes and ambitions as us—except that a twist of fate has bound their lives to a global refugee crisis on an unprecedented scale.”
“There are millions of people, refugees, who have experienced the same conflicts and struggles I did. They have the same potential to defy the odds and achieve great things."
“To be called a refugee is the opposite of an insult; it is a badge of strength, courage, and victory.”
Tennessee Office for Refugees
