KINDERHOOK, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Faith leaders came together in Kinderhook to rally and hold a “live” nativity scene to call for the welcoming of Syrian refugees to New York State.
The group will gather outside Representative Chris Gibson’s Kinderhook office. Protestors held signs and called for hope rather than fear. They said Mary, Joseph and Jesus were all refugees.
Gibson has sided with those who think refugees could bring danger to the United States after terror attacks in Paris.
The group hopes they delivered a statement urging the government to show compassion and welcome to Syrian refugees this holiday season.
