Media CenterAfter Paris Attack: CRS Tells MSNBC Why We Need to Provide More Assistance to Refugees
In the aftermath of the horrific terrorist attack in Paris last Friday, Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is praying for the victims’ families as well as all those who have suffered from extremist violence in the Middle East and Europe. CRS expresses concern over the possible backlash against assisting Syrian refugees, thousands of whom continue to arrive in Europe in search of safety. MSNBC interviews Bill O'Keefe, vice president for government relations and advocacy for Catholic Relief Services, on why the terrorist attack in Paris highlights the need to assist refugees more, not less. O'Keefe says we need to "avoid demonizing the innocent.”
