At Durango gathering, Green Party’s Arn Menconi says U.S. should open arms to refugees
Arn Menconi, the Green Party candidate for U.S. Senate, talked about the change he would like to see in Washington, D.C. on a visit to Durango on Sunday in the middle of the holiday weekend.
“The thing that brought people here on a bright summer Sunday is moral integrity,” Menconi, 57, told the group. “Why are we doing what we’re doing? There are 65 million people living in refugee camps, with most of them there because of war. America’s the superpower on the planet, and we’re not even willing to bring in the 10,000 we agreed to?”
