BROOKLYN - Members of Brooklyn's Muslim, Jewish and Christian communities came together on the steps of Borough Hall Saturday night to protest hatred they say is fueling anti-Muslim violence.

Residents of all faiths united against the exclusion of Syrian refugees.

They say anti-Muslim violence is getting out of control.

"I was allowed into this country," said supporter Harry Rayman. "I feel it's anti-American for us not accept a number of refugees here."

Organizers say the goal was to send a message that America is a nation of refugees and that it must continue to keep its doors open.
