This edition: How Do We Deal with the Syrian Refugee Crisis?

Episode Details

Original tape date: November 14, 2016.

First aired: November 28, 2016.

The bloody civil war in Syria has spawned a refugee crisis of dimensions unknown since World War II. Nearly 5.5 million people have fled the conflict with only around 10,000 re-settled in the United States - less than 0.2 per cent of the total Syrian refugee population. Yet, during the campaign, President-elect Trump said he would close the door to Syrian immigration. International Rescue Committee President David Miliband tells Jim Zirin that the U.S. must open its doors to carefully vetted Syrian refugees, and do its part to avert a humanitarian disaster.
