Stein: European refugee crisis is “inevitable consequence” of U.S. foreign policy

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein’s campaign said Thursday that the U.S. government “must recognize its moral obligation to make a major and immediate commitment to humanitarian relief for the refugees pouring into Europe.” The campaign said the United States “cannot walk away from this crisis, given the major and direct role of U.S. foreign policy in militarizing the Middle East and destabilizing societies there.”

Stein added, “The present crisis of refugees from Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria is the inevitable consequence of a foreign policy that puts oil profits, weapons sales, and support for totalitarian regimes above people, planet, and peace.”
