The situation is almost too depressing to think about, but here’s a bunch of information on the subject from the National Security Network, including the point that refugees from Iraq are now almost 10 percent of Jordan’s population, a situation that’s not really sustainable and that certainly indicates they won’t be able to accept many more refugees without things totally going to hell. Not only is the United States famously being extremely stingy with the number of refugees we accept into our borders, but we’re doing essentially nothing to direct support the refugees in the region or the countries hosting them.
