Since the start of the Syrian civil war in 2011, the federal government has resettled 400 Syrian refugees in Georgia.
Last year, Governor Nathan Deal issued an executive order halting resettlement of Syrians in Georgia, but rescinded it after the attorney general issued a legal opinion against the order.
U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker says that’s a good thing.
He has served both Republican and Democratic presidents representing the United States in countries including Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq.
Crocker recently joined Rickey Bevington in the studio for a conversation about ISIS, the Trump administration and refugees in America.
