Trump wants fewer refugees. Here's what that could mean for Seattle

Kim Malcolm talks with Rabbi Will Berkovitz about how President Trump's plan to reduce the number of refugees allowed into the U.S. will impact the refugee community in the Puget Sound region. Berkovitz is CEO of Jewish Family Service in Seattle.

On Monday, the Trump Administration capped the number of refugees for the next fiscal year at 30,000. For 2018, the limit was set at 45,000.
