Maxine Waters’ solution to ending the Syrian civil war is to bring new 100,000 refugees to America.
During a Sunday call with MoveOn activists, the California Congresswoman endorsed the idea.

Waters faulted Trump’s bombing of Syria and said his “emotions” guided his actions.
She said America should open its doors to many more refugees.
“We really have to do everything that we possibly can, not only to allow those Syrians who want to leave to be able to come to the United States, and, you are absolutely correct. If he cared so much about the children, he would not have the travel ban that will not allow them in,” Waters said.
“These poor Syrians, even those leaving their homes and, you know, trying to find safe places in that country that are basically starving.
“They don’t have the food. We have not done enough in my estimation to try and get lanes, safe lanes, in order to deliver food and keep them alive,” she said.
“And those that are trying to get out, should be allowed to come to this country and I certainly support MoveOn and will sign to make sure that we continue to fight for them to be able to come to this country, the 100,000 or so, that you basically have identified in the petition,” Waters said.
MoveOn is building its contact list by circulating a petition demanding 100,000 new refugees.
“The U.S. government must match the generous and humanitarian impulses of the American people and live up to our international responsibilities to support the people of Syria—by expediting the acceptance and resettlement of 100,000 Syrian refugees,” it reads.
