Additional Information on the National Network for Immigrant & Refugee Rights

* When the U.S. military repelled the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1991, NNIRR condemned America’s “brutal military assault on Iraq,” characterizing it as a “dispute over control of oil fields.” Echoing calls of “No Blood for Oil,” NNIRR predicted that “the U.S. war on Iraq” would “unleas[h] immigration-related repression.”

* NNIRR has taken an equally dim view of America’s closest Middle Eastern ally, Israel. With no explicit mention of the ongoing Palestinian terrorist campaign against Israeli civilians, NNIRR in April 2002 issued a press release condemning “the violation of human rights of the Palestinian people by Israeli military forces.” Moreover, it exhorted the U.S. government to support UN Security Council Resolution 1402, which demanded Israel’s swift withdrawal of all military troops from Palestinian-controlled areas.
