Jolie saddened by US response to migrants

Associated Press Associated Press 16/05/2016

Angelina Jolie says she is "very disheartened" by the US response to the global migration crisis.

Speaking at a migration event in London on Monday, the special envoy for the United Nations refugee agency said she feared countries would adopt increasingly isolationist policies instead of acting together to solve the challenge.

She believes fear of uncontrolled migration "has created the risk of a race to the bottom, with countries competing to be the toughest".

Jolie also referred to Republican presidential contender Donald Trump, who suggested a temporary ban on all Muslims entering the US.

Jolie said "America is built on people from around the world coming together for freedoms" adding "so it is hard to hear that this is coming from someone who's pressing to be an American president".
