Press briefing with Simon Henshaw, the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees, and Migration.

"The United States remains deeply committed to safeguarding the American people from terrorists, just as we are committed to providing refuge to the world’s most vulnerable people. We do not believe these goals are mutually exclusive or that either has to be pursued at the expense of the other."
