Ex-diplomats warn Pompeo against eliminating U.S. refugee bureau

Ex-diplomats warn Pompeo against eliminating U.S. refugee bureauBy Lesley Wroughton WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Thirty-two prominent former U.S. diplomats and 11 aid groups on Monday urged U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo not to eliminate a key State Department refugee bureau, warning that the move would be “an error of grave proportion.” In a letter to Pompeo, the former diplomats and national security advisers who served both Democratic and Republican administrations, said eliminating the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM) office would impact the U.S. ability to influence global refugee policy. The letter comes barely a year after 58 U.S. policy experts warned Rex Tillerson, former secretary of state, against such a move.
