Rand Paul has been talking to President Donald Trump about the possibility of offering Asia Bibi asylum in the United States – that is, if she’s allowed out of the country. I think this is hugely important, and I’m glad that the President is taking this seriously.
Asia Bibi (pronounced AH-seyah) is a Christian Pakistani woman who had been convicted of the crime of blasphemy in her Muslim home country, and sentenced to death. She is currently seeking foreign refugee status after her decade-old conviction was found to be on shaky grounds.
I would advise Asia to travel to the US if she can, rather than seeking refuge in the European Union. With our open borders, what would make her safe?
I also think it’s important for us to put pressure on our government to make real change to our foreign aid investment to Pakistan. It’s time to stop giving money to this terrorist-supporting state, and I hope you can help me by signing our petition or contributing to our campaign at StopForeignAidtoPakistan.com.
