Syrian refugees resettle in Toledo

As the war in Syria continues, thousands of people continue to flee Syria as refugees in search of a new home. Despite the fact that numerous American governors have said they do not want Syrian refugees in their states and an application process that involves multiple interviews, a small number of Syrian refugees are being resettled in the U.S. Cities across the country with significant Syrian populations have taken the lead in accepting these refugees, including Toledo, Ohio, often dubbed ‘Little Syria.’ When Syrian refugees step off the plane at Toledo Airport, they’re typically greeted by resettlement coordinator Corine Dehabey. She joins us today to discuss her work for the non-profit US Together, which is helping resettle Syrian refugees across Ohio. (Photo: Facebook/US Together)
