After reports that the United States will meet its goal of taking in 10,000 Syrian refugees, Amnesty International USA issued the following statement:

“Thousands of families from Syria have found safety on our shores, and that is a wonderful thing. But so many are still trapped in horrific conditions in refugee camps or war zones,” said Tarah Demant, senior director with Amnesty International USA. “The U.S. must do more to uphold its responsibility to do all it can to protect those fleeing human rights abuses.”
