Should the US Take in More Refugees or Fewer?
Episode 2 | 26m 47s
The civil war in Syria, now in its fifth year, has caused more than 4.8 million Syrians to flee the country. The US has committed to taking in 10,000 of these refugees—that’s 0.2% percent. With millions of refugee lives at stake, we must ask ourselves: should the US take in more refugees, or fewer? Hosted by Carlos Watson with guests Roy Beck, Melanie Nezer, Ash-har Quraishi, and Jessica Vaughan.
