Critiquing the U.S. response to the refugee crisis

Last week the House passed a bill that effectively restricts Syrian and Iraqi refugees from entering the U.S by requiring extra security procedures. The bill will now head to the Senate. President Obama has threatened to veto it. We’ll discuss the potential impact of the legislation with Kirk Johnson, founder of The List Project, an organization that has helped bring Iraqis who have worked with the US military to the US. Johnson is also the author of 'To Be a Friend is Fatal. The Fight to Save the Iraqis America Left Behind'. (Photo: Flickr/iprimages)
