Biden has opened up the floodgates, plans to allow over 65,000 refugees into the united states a year, quadrupling the number set by Trump at 15,000 coming from all over the world.
For the last four years, the number of refugees that can be administered lowered to its lowest point, 15K worldwide, Biden plans to open up the floodgates and allow more than 62,500 people into the country. The Biden administration figures look like this: 22,000 refugees will be allowed in from Africa, 13,000 from the Middle East, 6,000 from East Asia. 4,000 from Europe and 5,000 from Latin America. The remaining 12,500 will remain unallocated.
Joe Said in a statement, “Today, I am revising the United States’ annual refugee admissions cap to 62,500 for this fiscal year,” he went on to say. “This erases the historically low number set by the previous administration of 15,000, which did not reflect America’s values as a nation that welcomes and supports refugees.” he finished off by saying, “It is important to take this action today to remove any lingering doubt in the minds of refugees around the world who have suffered so much, and who are anxiously waiting for their new lives to begin.”
Biden says he wants to admit 125K refugees in his first fiscal year in office but said that by the end of 2021, they wouldn’t be able to hit the cap.
“The sad truth is that we will not achieve 62,500 admissions this year,” he wrote in the announcement.
“We are working quickly to undo the damage of the last four years. It will take some time, but that work is already underway.”
