While visiting a camp for Syrian refugees in Jordan

Humanitarian aid is not a long-term solution. No one wants to get off aid more than a Syrian family. A viable political settlement is the only way to create the conditions for Syrians to be able to return to their homes, to end the human suffering and the strain on host countries.

In an interview with Barbara Walters, about banning Syrian refugees

Promised we don’t know if they’re Christian or not and I would certainly say that would be a superior but we don’t know if they’re Christian or not. We have no idea who the people are, they have no papers, they have no paperwork. You can get forged documents very easily in Syria.

In an interview with People, talking about her conversation with Lebanon refugee children

So many refugees are children. I’ve often heard them say that the most painful thing is not that they have lost their homes—it is that they have lost their friends.

Today was hard on the heart. We spent the afternoon in town of Mafraq, Jordan. The name of the town comes from the Arabic word for 'split'. And it indeed feels like a fractured place. The city is swelling with refugees who have fled Syria, now having fled violence in the camps. These people are weary and exhausted. Fearful. All they want is to go home, but their homes are gone. They told us, 'We are only alive because there is no death here'. They are existing. They do not feel like they are living. And yet still they were so welcoming.
