World Refugee Day propaganda
events underway this month

Ann Corcoran on June 10, 2016

Since the year 2000 the United Nations has celebrated
World Refugee Day on June 20th and now it’s pretty
much the whole month of June!


All across America the media will be reporting warm and fuzzy stories about events featuring foods, and costumes and dancing etc. to highlight the joys of ethnic diversity that have been brought to communities large and small (if they wanted it or not!) for the last 35 years through the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program.

I was reminded of the annual propaganda event when I saw this press release from the International Rescue Committee (one of the nine major federal refugee contractors) from ten days ago.

EXCERPT from Press Release:
