World Refugee Day Must Spark Renewed Commitment to U.S. Protection of Refugees

Washington, DC As refugees, the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees and individuals around the world celebrate World Refugee Day, Human Rights First (HRF) is urging the United States to mark this occasion by strengthening its commitment to protect the rights of refugees who flee from persecution. HRF noted that the June 20th festivities provide an opportunity for U.S. leaders to reevaluate current refugee protection policies and take steps to ensure that the United States is living up to its moral and treaty commitments to refugees.
