CNN had a Facebook Live session with CNN reporter Clarissa Ward, Sherrie Westin from Sesame Street, International Rescue Committee's David Miliband and Elmo to discuss refugees.
When asked about his visits to Syrian refugee camps, Elmo called his time there "really wonderful".
“They like to play and learn just like Elmo and all his friends at Sesame Street. Elmo thinks it’s important to know that everybody is the same deep down and that’s very important.”
Miliband also spoke about the US Supreme Court's decision to uphold part of President Trump's travel ban and the president's stance on refugees.
"It's worth saying, perhaps especially today, that this country, the US, receives very few refugees and there's a lot of fear and loathing being put out."
