He is the only Libyan refugee we allowed in last year. (Libya is one of Trump’s seven.) His story brings to life the current vetting process that some consider insufficiently extreme.

Also, let me know if you have connections to a medical school that might give him credit for some of his course work. He was one exam away from graduating.
If you want to help him repay his airfare to America (the US gives refugees six months to do that), and perhaps help a bit with other expenses of starting a new life, here’s how. But truthfully, he’s one of the lucky ones: he’s here.
