U.S. Taking In 7,000 Iraqi Refugees

Al-Jazeera reports that the United States will be interviewing something like 7,000 Iraqi refugees for permanent entry into the U.S.

   On top of that, the State Department is going to offer $18 million to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to help Iraqis who have been displaced.

   The U.S. was heavily criticized for taking in only 202 refugees in all of 2006. I guess that there weren't enough tax breaks in it for the Bush Crime Family, at the time.
