Kurdish refugees want visas for relatives, friends who helped US military

Eric Schwartz addresses the challenges of the refugee visa program.

"The challenge of course is that we're in an unusual situation with respect to those Iraqis who want to come to the United States, who may be at risk, who remain in Iraq," Schwartz said. "The issue is how much should we do? My answer to that question is we need to do a lot. I think we need to do more than we're doing, with an understanding that we can't do everything."
