Trump’s Childhood Home Becomes Showcase for Refugees

President Trump’s childhood home in New York was on Saturday rented out by international charity Oxfam, which invited four refugees to the $2.14 million property to speak with journalists. Those invited to the Tudor-style home in Queens shared their stories in order to draw attention to the refugee crisis. Trump, who grew up in the three-story house built by his father, Fred, will attend the United Nations General Assembly this week. “We wanted to send a strong message to Trump and world leaders that they must do more to welcome refugees,” Shannon Scribner, acting director for the humanitarian department of Oxfam America, told the Associated Press. Eiman Ali, 22, came to the U.S. when she was three years old. Her parents fled their native Somalia for Yemen and then came to the United States. “To have someone so outspoken against my community become the president of the United States was very eye-opening and hurtful because I have invested a lot in this country,” she said.
