Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Hol­ly­wood ac­tor Anne Hath­away (right) has taken to so­cial me­dia to ap­plaud state lead­ers of the US who are wel­com­ing the re­set­tle­ment of new Syr­ian refugees. US Pres­i­dent Barack Obama an­nounced in Septem­ber that 10,000 Syr­i­ans would be re­lo­cated to the US in 2016 to help al­le­vi­ate the refugee cri­sis in Europe, but now, many lead­ers have voiced their op­po­si­tion to the plans amid fears that ter­ror­ists may gain en­try into their state. “Bravo to th­ese brave lead­ers for promis­ing to ac­cept Syr­ian refugees and for not let­ting ter­ror­ists rob them of their hu­man­ity,” the Princess Diaries ac­tor said. “We must pro­ceed cau­tiously, but we can­not forget our obli­ga­tion to one an­other as cit­i­zens of this planet. I’m proud to quote Gov. Jack Markell of Delaware, ‘It is un­for­tu­nate that any­one would use the tragic events in Paris to send a mes­sage that we do not understand the plight of th­ese refugees, ig­nor­ing the fact that the peo­ple we are talk­ing about are flee­ing the per­pe­tra­tors of terror.’ Peace and love to all mankind,” she added.
