John Kerry meets refugees from different countries

Secretary of State John Kerry met refugees from Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Burma, Eritrea, Congo and other countries.

He said that the refugees went through difficult times to reach the US to rebuild their lives and contribute to the society in a meaningful way.

He emphasized that every refugee has to undergo detailed screening to be accepted as a refugee and that it is a requirement that they find any job to support themselves in the US.

“I’m particularly grateful to the folks here in the community who are contributing so much to the ability of these folks to go to work, to be able to find an apartment, and begin to become American”, Kerry said.

The Secretary of State also thanked the International Rescue Committee, which organizes through a nationwide network the smooth integration of refuges after their arrival.

“This is something Americans should be very, very proud of. I know I am, and I feel very privileged to have shared the dreams and the hopes of each of the people who are here”, he said.
