Ivanka “open” to idea of more Syrian refugees

On Wednesday, NBC’s “Today” held an interview with first daughter Ivanka Trump to discuss the issues of the refugee crisis.

Ivanka said she is open to the idea of allowing Syrian refugees into the United States. However, she emphasized that this alone won’t be enough to solve the growing refugee crisis in the Middle East.

“I think there is a global humanitarian crisis that’s happening and we have to come together and we have to solve it,” she said. In regards to opening borders to Syrian refugees, she stated: “That has to be part of the discussion, but that’s not going to be enough in and of itself.”

Her statements somewhat contrast those made by her father. Earlier this year, President Trump issued an executive order on the temporary suspension of the refugee resettlement program. The order also blocked entry of nationals from six majority-Muslim countries for 90 days.

The order was ultimately rescinded by a federal judge in Hawaii, despite Trump arguing the ban was necessary to U.S. security.
