Trump cuts refugee cap to all time low 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.
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement.

Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
