U.S. Meets Iraqi Resettlement Goal for FY 09 – But Additional Measures Needed
Human Rights First welcomes the U.S. announcement that it has met its goal of resettling 17,000 vulnerable Iraqi refugees by September 30 – in total, 18,833 Iraqi refugees found safety in the United States in FY 09. But we call on the U.S. government to devote additional attention and resources to resolving a number of remaining impediments that delay timely resettlement of the most vulnerable Iraqis.
