Thanks to Jim for sending this….
I think they see that someone might break their rice bowls (the contractors are paid by the head to resettle refugees). Three bigwigs in conference call!

In Wake of Paris Tragedy, Refugee Resettlement Leaders Respond to Latest Calls to Stop the Admission of Syrian Refugees
Explain Why U.S. Can and Should Be a Leader in Refugee Protection and Resettlement
Washington, DC – On a press call today, November 17th at 11 AM Eastern, a coalition of humanitarian and refugee resettlement leaders will respond to the latest calls to stop the admission of Syrian refugees and explain why the U.S. must show leadership in the face of this global crisis.
In the wake of last week’s tragic attacks in Paris, France, many have been quick to point fingers and place blame on refugee families fleeing horrific violence and terrorism in Syria. In the United States, multiple governors have announced their opposition to the resettlement of Syrian refugees in their state. A number of Presidential candidates have also called for a halt to all refugee settlement of Syrians.
On today’s call, speakers will describe the extraordinary nature of the crisis, the unprecedented screening mechanisms already in place, and call for continued US leadership on one of the worst humanitarian crisis since WWII.
