Resettlement of Syrian Refugees - ORR Dear Colleague letter

ORR director Bob Carey responds to the recent much-publicized statements by various governors declaring their intention to reject Syrian refugees in the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks. Carey addresses the screening process used to vet refugees, and notes that "States that continue to use ORR funding must ensure that assistance and services are delivered without regard to race, religion, nationality, sex, or political opinion", in addition to other protections against discrimination. Read Carey's full letter on the ORR site.
