U.S. To Accept 10,000 Syrian Refugees. Is That Enough?
As Europe struggles to cope with its biggest refugee crisis since World War II, the rest of the world is under pressure to help as well.
The Obama administration has responded by saying the U.S. will accept thousands more Syrian refugees in the next year. That compares to the fewer than 2,000 the U.S. has accepted this year.
Paul O’Brien is vice president of policy and advocacy for Oxfam America, a humanitarian organization aimed at ending world poverty. He joins Here & Now‘s Meghna Chakrabarti to discuss whether the U.S. is doing enough to help refugees.
