Nikki Haley Defends Trump’s Refugee Ban, Claiming Syrians Don’t Want to Come to U.S.

HeadlineApr 16, 2018

Following the U.S. military strikes against Syria, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley tried to defend President Trump’s efforts to ban Syrian refugees from entering the United States. This is Haley speaking on Fox News on Sunday.

Nikki Haley: “Not one of the many that I talked to ever said, 'We want to go to America.' They want to stay as close to Syria as they can.”

The United States has accepted only 11 Syrian refugees so far this year. The United Nations says about 5 million Syrians have been forcibly displaced outside Syria by the ongoing 7-year conflict. We’ll have more on Syria after headlines.
