Moulton to Host Roundtable and Press Conference with Syrian Refugees, Law Enforcement, and Community Groups TomorrowSalem, Mass. – Tomorrow, Congressman Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) will host a roundtable with Syrian refugees, the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy (MIRA) Coalition, law enforcement officials, and community groups to discuss issues facing the refugee community in Massachusetts and the importance of strong federal policies that protect Americans and uphold our values. Moulton will join the roundtable participants in a press conference immediately following the roundtable at 2:45pm.
The roundtable comes on the heels of a Boston Globe column that highlighted Moulton’s leadership on the issue and his personal experience with his Iraqi translator, Mohammed, who sought asylum in the United States.

Tomorrow’s roundtable reflects Moulton’s continued focus on this important issue. Moulton published an opinion piece in the Boston Globe today arguing that “‘pausing’ refugee immigration will not help our national security — it may directly harm it” and that shutting the door on Syrian refugees will be “another propaganda tool” for ISIS.
