"Attacking problems at the source makes it possible to help many more vulnerable people, and to do so much more rapidly, than could be done through resettlement or asylum in the United States." https://t.co/8GjzkRl2WX— Mark Krikorian (@MarkSKrikorian) September 26, 2019
This is nice.
“The Trump administration is proposing to cut the number of refugees permitted to resettle in the U.S. next year to just 18,000 — down from a record-low of 30,000 last year, according to a State Department press release on Thursday. …
In addition, Trump issued an Executive Order on Thursday evening instructing the federal government to resettle refugees only in jurisdictions where state and local governments have consented to receive those refugees, with “limited exceptions.” …”
These four cuts in the refugee cap are the sole bright spot that comes to mind in the Trump administration’s immigration record. It’s not nothing, but a 12,000 a year cut in the annual intake of refugees doesn’t come close to making up for the huge surge in illegal immigration.
