The Hill quoted Michelle Nunn, president and CEO of CARE, in a story about the Trump Administration’s travel ban and its impact on Syrian refugees in Jordan.  Due to the ban, the U.S. has admitted only 13 refugees from Syria so far in 2018, according to the State Department. Experts in the region say that, beyond the travel ban, cuts to aid have hurt refugees in places like Jordan. “It’s not only that we’re cutting off our own [refugee] intake, it’s that we’re cutting off aid in the region,” Nunn said.  Read the story here.
