Trump Administration Doesn't Want to Hear About Benefits of Welcoming Refugees

Julia Conley, staff writer

At the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, President Donald Trump pushed back against the United Nations' appeals to resettle refugees displaced by the civil war in Syria and other conflicts, saying in his speech, "For the cost of settling one refugee in the U.S., we could support ten in their home country." But according to a New York Times report, the White House suppressed research demonstrating that refugees contribute more to government revenues than they cost.
