Agreed, this is badly worded and thought out. A simple change would be:
"When the Tal Shiar tried to stop us rebuilding our homeworld Starfleet took action on our behalf, as refugees we had neither the manpower or the means to protect ourselves. It is through these actions that Starfleet was invited to New Romulus to help us rebuild our homeland. Let us hope that from tragedy and mistrust a new order and a new friendship can be built as well as a new homeworld"
This would be a fantastic replacement for the current ambiguous wording.
