ADL twitter campaign #ThisIsARefugee is an opportunity for fun!
Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 2, 2017
The Anti-Defamation League, pushing back on the Trump Administration’s efforts to slow the flow of potentially dangerous refugees to America, has launched a twitter campaign titled #ThisIsARefugee.
Putting a face on the refugee issue….
Announced on February 12th, their campaign isn’t getting much traction except from Pamela Geller and yours truly. I posted some of my refugee criminals including Esar Met, Fazliddin Kurbanov, Jasim Ramadon, and today’s newest member of the refugee criminal hit parade Abdirhman Ahmad Noor.
Here is the ADL website with their press release:
New York, NY, February 12, 2017 … Anti-Defamation League (ADL) CEO Jonathan A. Greenblatt announced the start of the #ThisIsARefugee campaign on the heels of today’s National Day of Jewish Action for Refugees rally in New York sponsored by HIAS***.
As the pre-eminent Jewish civil rights organization, ADL is launching the effort to bring to light how much refugees have given to make America the country it is today and underscore how short-sighted and contrary to American values a ban on refugees is.
Still trying to get traction just 4 days ago:
We can play the story game too!
As I have said repeatedly, for every refugee violinist or Harvard grad story, I can give you a story about a refugee terrorist or a criminal.
If you are on twitter and have some refugee stories, post them here #ThisIsARefugee!
