Refugees continue to reach Michigan


With President Trump's travel ban temporarily on hold and refugees once again allowed to resettle in Michigan, those who work with them hope people will channel their efforts into helping them adjust. Michigan based Samaritas spokesperson Lynne Golodner says there is still much misinformation about who refugees are, and what they go through to get here.


"What's unbelievable is that there is such a perception of fear of refugees, because refugees have gone through the worst traumas on the planet. When we see the human side of it, I think it changes the conversation."


She says they are currently experiencing almost daily arrivals, including the 28 refugees from Iraq and Syria whose resettlements had to be halted when the White House travel ban first went into place.
