Airbnb offers free housing to refugees
AIRBNB, the home-sharing site, has said it will give free housing to refugees and any others not allowed into the US, presumably as a result of President Trump’s executive order to temporarily ban refugees from the country.
Brian Chesky, the cofounder and chief executive of Airbnb, tweeted the offer late on Saturday as travelers from several Muslim-majority countries were detained or otherwise placed in limbo at airports around the world.
Airbnb is providing free housing to refugees and anyone not allowed in the US.
President Trump on Friday signed orders to suspend admission of all refugees into the US for 120 days and to implement “new vetting measures” to screen out “radical Islamic terrorists.” Refugee entry from Syria, however, would be suspended indefinitely.
