'Forgetting Who We Are': Clooney Calls Out U.S. Over Syrian Refugee Crisis
George Clooney and his wife Amal recently met with three Syrian refugee families who are now living in Berlin.
In the meeting organized by the International Rescue Committee ahead of the fifth anniversary of the start of the Syrian conflict, the families shared their stories of fleeing war-ravaged Syria and their hopes for a better future.
George spoke about his Irish heritage and the difficulties his family initially faced as immigrants in the U.S., and Amal shared her background as a refugee from war-torn Lebanon who relocated to the U.K.
"What our country is, it is a country of immigrants," Clooney said. "And we have not done a good job recently of remembering who we are."
"Being here talking with you is important to remind them of who we are and who we have always been which is you."
