Obama Welcomes Refugees During Eid al-Adha Statement

President Barack Obama is reaching out to Muslim refugees, issuing a statement recognizing the Muslim holiday of Eid-al-Adha.

“[W]e are reminded of the millions of refugees around the globe who are spending this sacred holiday separated from their families, unsure of their future, but still hoping for a brighter tomorrow,” Obama said.

He told Americans that the United States is determined to welcome Muslim refugees and immigrants into the country.

“As a Nation, we remain committed to welcoming the stranger with empathy and an open heart—from the refugee who flees war-torn lands to the immigrant who leaves home in search of a better life,” he said.
