Barbara Bush about refugees in the Houston Astrodome

What I'm hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas. Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality. And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this is working very well for them.
Fellow Fulbrighter Niels sent us these – in his words - "unsettling comments" by former First Lady Barbara Bush, who accompanied her husband and Bill Clinton on a tour of the Astrodome Complex on September 5th. The former presidents call for generous donations to the Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund.
