Senators: US should take more Syrian refugees

Democratic and Republican senators say the US should offer a home to more Syrian refugees. Syria's civil war is now in its third year. More than 2 million have fled the Arab country, straining neighboring Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. Many live under awful conditions.

 

US aid totals $1.3 billion. But the US has resettled about 100 Syrian refugees since fighting began. (AP)
