Jim Zirin speaks with David Miliband.

The bloody civil war in Syria has spawned a refugee crisis of dimensions unknown since World War II. Nearly 5.5 million people have fled the conflict with only around 10,000 re-settled in the United States—less than 0.2 per cent of the total Syrian refugee population. Yet, during the campaign, President-elect Trump said he would close the door to Syrian immigration. International Rescue Committee President David Miliband tells Jim that the U.S. must open its doors to carefully vetted Syrian refugees, and  do its part to avert a humanitarian disaster.
