More or Less? Possible Solutions to the Worldwide Refugee Crisis

International conflict is causing many to look to the United States as a safe haven. According to the U.S. Department of State, the country admitted nearly 70,000 refugees in 2015. Cleveland alone has received more than 2,500 refugees since 2008.

As a nation, what is our obligation to these individuals? Is the answer a wall, an open door, or something in between? 

This Youth Forum Council panel discussion looks to address the issue of immigration and refugees in America.

 

Panelists include:

Scott Bratton, Partner, Margaret Wong and Associates

Khoon Thomas Kate, Program Coordinator and Board Member of Refugee Response Network, and Refugee from Burma

Tom Mrosko, Director, Migration and Refugee Services, Catholic Charities, Diocese of Cleveland

 

This conversation is moderated by Youth Forum Council member ​Kirsten Pomales.
