Obama: Refugee Crisis ‘a Crisis of Our Shared Security, Not Because Refugees are a Threat’
by Bridgett Johnson at PJMedia:
“During a leaders’ summit convened by the United States on the plight of refugees at the United Nations today, President Obama called for “collective action” on a crisis that’s “one of the most urgent tests of our time.”
Before the 50-nation refugee summit, Obama sat down with a CEO roundtable as the White House announced 51 U.S. companies “made new, measurable, and significant commitments to aid refugees in the United States and around the world” that amount to “investing, donating, or raising more than $650 million” for refugee support, education and employment opportunities.
The list of companies includes AirBNB, Citigroup, Facebook, Goldman Sachs, Google, HP, IBM, Ikea, Johnson & Johnson, Mastercard, Microsoft, Soros Fund Management, TripAdvisor, Twitter, Uber, UPS and Western Union.
Obama said at the roundtable that the private-sector commitments amount to “educational opportunities for more than 80,000 refugees,” including those in camps, and “employment opportunities for more than 220,000 refugees.”……….”
