Former U.S. Diplomats Are Trying To Save Refugee Office

Wochit Headline News - Monday, 17 July 2017
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is being urged by forty former U.S. diplomats and national security officials not to shut down the State Department office that handles refugees. The Trump administration is reportedly considering transferring the responsibilities of the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration to other agencies, but in a letter sent to Tillerson on Monday, the group stressed that this could undermine U.S. diplomatic leverage in dealing with foreign crises.
