HIAS President and CEO Mark Hetfield speaks to CNN's Wolf Blitzer about why the American Jewish community should support refugees of all religions in finding safety in the United States.

On June 3, Blitzer moderated a HIAS virtual event with Mark Hetfield, HIAS' president and CEO, and Daniela Gerson, a journalism professor at California State University, Northridge. The panel discussed "Lies That Matter," a book by Gerson's father, Allan, about his experiences expelling Nazis from the United States after World War II.
