Trump and refugees
It was a privilege to stand on the platform at the Holocaust Memorial Day last week. It served as a horrific reminder of what happens when people turn their backs on prejudice and discrimination. It was particularly sad that Donald Trump chose Holocaust Memorial Day to introduce his restriction on refugees, and to discriminate against those in need on the grounds of their religion.
Please be assured that the Methodist people are appalled by these actions and we particularly wish to stand with our Muslim brothers and sisters in the face of such discrimination.
