It has happened every year since 2001 when the UN declared June 20th ‘World Refugee Day‘—an opportunity to build a media/fund raising message around this arbitrary day!
The Left knows how to make proclamations about events like this one as a way to build a media campaign and to raise money for whatever the cause. (Why don’t conservatives do that sort of thing?)

Editor: A reader asked that I place a link to the White House contact form on the front page here at ‘Frauds and Crooks.’ See it in the right hand sidebar.

This post might be one worth mentioning to the Prez because once again, HIAS gets millions from the federal government (from us!) while it criticizes the President we elected.
