It's stuff like this that makes me deeply ashamed of the current administration. We owe so much to the Iraqis. Taking in a decent number of refugees seems like a bare minimum for decent behavior. Syria and Jordan have had to deal with hundreds of thousands of Iraqi refugees. Maybe we could end our occupation, and spend a tiny fraction of that money resettling Iraqis here. We owe a special debt to Iraqis who worked for us and now face retaliation for their association with the United States.
