The leader of one of the oldest U.S. refugee groups praised the work of the leading Palestinian refugee relief organization. Lavinia Limon, who heads the Immigration and Refugee Services of America, said UNRWA has “done a credible job of it for over 50 years.” Limon was reacting to Rep. Tom Lantos (D-Calif.), who recently wrote a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan calling for a probe of the U.N. body that runs camps and services for Palestinian refugees.
