Tulsi Gabbard on Refugees

Key Points

  • Tulsi strongly feels that we must address the primary root problem of the refugee crisis, which is the U.S. policy of regime change war
  • Millions of refugees have fled Syria as a result of illegal U.S./Saudi Arabia war to overthrow Assad by arming terrorist “rebels”
  • Refugees from Central America are also a result of decades of U.S. regime change war, drug wars and exploitative economic policy
  • It’s critical to allow refugees to seek solace in our country, while simultaneously addressing the root causes of the crisis


  • H. Res 435  “Recognizing the persecution of religious and ethnic minorities, especially Christians and Yezidis, by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also known as Daesh, and calling for the immediate prioritization of accepting refugees from such communities.”
