    This Halloween, as children around the world dress up in their favorite costumes, we asked Syrian refugee children who work on the streets and in the fields of Lebanon to tell us about their own superpowers. More than anything, these children dream of the normalcy missing from their lives following the war. ""I''d like to have superpowers so I could go to school. I would fly there and fly back one child told us. At least 500,000 Syrian refugee children live in Lebanon. Many have no choice but to work to help their families survive. If I could travel in time, I would go to Syria before the war, one child told us. If I was Ironman, no matter how much I worked, my hands would never feel tired, said another. Were so proud to support these kidsbecause all children deserve a safe space to play, learn and just be kids. Double-tap if you agree. #StandWithRefugees #RefugeesWelcome #Halloween #NoLostGeneration

    Its a fact: the U.S. refugee resettlement program already had the most rigorous vetting system. Screenings involve six government agencies and take up to 36 months. Truth is, Trumps Travel Ban extension announced this week hurts refugees & does not make us safer. Its against our values and undermines every value the resettlement program is created to defend. This extension, along with new, counterproductive refugee vetting measures could add months, or years, to new or existing refugee cases. We support thorough and common-sense vetting but this weeks changes are not that. Visit Rescue.org for more facts about refugees and how you can make a difference. #StandWithRefugees #RefugeesWelcome

    The persecution of the Rohingya minority has continued unabated, in full view of the world. Her Majesty @QueenRania. This past week, the Queen of Jordan, also an IRC Board member, visited makeshift settlements in Bangladesh hosting Rohingya refugees. Since August over 600,000 Rohingya have fled violence and persecution in Myanmar in what has been the worlds fastest mass exodus since the Rwandan genocide in 1994. Thank you Queen Rania for being a critical voice for this crisis. To find out more on the situation and how you can help, visit Rescue.org. #RohingyaRefugeeCrisis #RohingyaCrisis

    This week, President Trump announced an extended Travel Ban and additional vetting measures for refugees. Here is Maryan, 6, a young refugee at home in Kakuma Refugee Camp, northern Kenya, affected by Trumps restrictions on refugees. Maryan has been living in the camp with her mother and siblings since she was three months old. Though Maryan and her family were meant to fly to Denver, Colorado this July, their flights were cancelled after a limited version of President Trump''s travel ban took effect. With almost 66M displaced globally - the highest in human history, now is not the time to turn our backs on the most vulnerable. We are proud to continue to stand with families like Maryans.
