Angelina Jolie is well recognized from her blockbuster movies. But, she’s also politically involved on issues that are important to her.

While she speaks out in favor of the Second Amendment, she is a mixed bag politically. Jolie is an envoy for the United Nations refugee agency. And she just went to a Greek port to visit with refugees who are quickly filling the camps there.

About 44,000 refugees are in Greece as the pathway through the Balkans to the heart of Europe have been blocked. Angelina went there “to reinforce efforts by UNHCR and the Greek government to step up the emergency response to the deteriorating humanitarian situation.”

About half of Syria’s population has been displaced because of the war there. This is causing a serious situation as those people flee. Countries have been burdened by the influx of these refugees and it has proven hard to track and identify some. This is an issue due to terrorism.

The Academy Award winning actress was mobbed by refugees who were anxious to see her. They gathered around her to hear and see her. Many took selfies with their smart phones. She also met with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to advocate for the refugees.

What do you think about Jolie’s visit to Greece? Does she change your mind at all on this situation? Please share your thoughts.
