Trump cuts refugee cap to all time low

Hosted by  • 

President Trump has cut the number of refugees to be allowed into the country next year to 45,000 — less than half the 110,000 Barack Obama set for this year and the lowest since the cap on refugees was conceived back in 1980. That's aroused political controversy, as you'd expect. Justin Nsenga is an American citizen who runs the nonprofit Partners for Refugee Empowerment in Texas. He's a Tutsi, who came here seeking asylum from Congo in 2004.
