US State Department to Address Chaldeans on Refugee and Resettlement Issues
By Amer Hedow :: Saturday, May 29, 2010 :: 104838 Views :: Career & Education, Government & Society, Chaldean Caucus

Michigan, USA – “I hope the State Department is prepared to defend its position with hard facts.  We are tired of hallow promises.  Chaldeans have not seen any serious action from the U.S. about protecting the rights of minority in Iraq or helping the hundreds of thousands of refugees scattered across the world,” says Anthony Aboud of Sterling Heights, Michigan.  “I pray every Chaldean concerned about what is happening in Iraq and what is happening to Chaldean refugees around the world joins me on June first.”

On Tuesday, June 1, 2010, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., Michael Corbin, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, Special Coordinator for Iraq's Minority Communities will be speaking at the American Polish Cultural Center located on 2975 E. Maple Road (corner of 15 Mile & Dequindre), Troy, MI 48083.

Corbin will be in Troy to address the Iraqi American community on U.S. policy toward Iraq, the concerns of Iraqi minority communities, and matters related to refugee resettlement.  Mr. Corbin recently returned from Iraq where he met with leaders and members of Iraq’s minority communities.  He will provide a comprehensive briefing on that trip, as well as current efforts to address their needs.

Serving under Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Corbin was appointed by President Barack Obama to the position of Deputy Assistant Secretary of State in the Bureau of near Eastern Affairs where he has served since July 2009 and focuses on issues concerning the Ethnic and Religious Minority Communities in Iraq.

Corbin will also be accompanied by Mr. Lawrence Bartlett, Deputy Director of the Office of Refugee Admissions, Bureau of Population, Refugee, and Migration, U.S. Department of State.  Mr. Bartlett recently returned from a trip to Iraq, Jordan and Syria and will speak about the Iraqi refugee resettlement program to the United States.  Representatives of Detroit area refugee resettlement agencies will also be available to respond to resettlement-related questions.

Reservations are not required in order to attend.  This event is open to the media.  If you require more information about the venue please contact Karina Skomska at 248-689-3636.
