US under pressure to accept more Syrian refugees

Syrian refugees land on the shores of the Greek island Lesbos in an inflatable dingy on September 3, 2015As the world watches drowned refugees wash up on Europe’s beaches, the United States is also under pressure to do more to help the desperate victims of Syria’s civil war.
