UNICEF begs Trump to consider 28 million refugees

UNICEF has asked President Donald Trump to open the US to the 28 million children who have been displaced by the conflicts in their countries.


The organisation made this appeal following Trump’s executive order to temporarily ban refugees from seven war- torn countries.


“The needs of refugees have never been greater,” UNICEF said.


“Worldwide 28 million children have been uprooted by conflict, driven from their homes by violence and terror. They need our help.


“The United States has a long and proud tradition of protecting children fleeing war and persecution. We trust that this support will continue and that the recent measures will prove to be temporary. All refugee children need our support.”


UNICEF said it is committed to working with governments and other partners around the world to help some of the most vulnerable children everywhere, from Syria to Yemen to South Sudan.


Trump temporarily banned immigration from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia, and indefinitely stopped Syrian refugees from coming to the United States.
