Statements By Congresspersons on World Refugee Day
In the House of Representatives on the occasion of World Refugee Day, Rep. Payne (D-NJ) quoted INS Commissioner Ziglar "The terrorist attacks of September 11
were caused by evil, not immigration. We can and will protect ourselves
against people who seek to harm the United States, but we cannot judge
immigrants or refugees by the actions of terrorists. Our Nation must
continue in its great tradition of offering a safe haven to the
oppressed and persecuted." In extension of remarks also in the House, Rep. Meek (D-FL) said "Haitian
refugees who make it to the United States have long been subject to
unfair and unequal treatment by the INS."
