Wartime Xenophobia Is An American Tradition

Anna Crosslin has been working in refugee resettlement in St. Louis for more than 30 years. She talks about the times throughout history when Americans have made decisions based on fear and explains why she thinks refugees are "part of the ethnic fiber that really has made America the wonderfully diverse and great place that it is."
