Coalition of Immigrant Rights Groups Outraged Over Historically Low Refugee Resettlement Allotment

WASHINGTON – Yesterday, the Trump administration sent a report to Congress proposing a refugee admission cap of just 15,000 for fiscal year 2021. This historically low number is unprecedented during any presidential administration, undercutting the administration’s previous record low of 18,000 for fiscal year 2020. To date, the Trump administration has failed to meet its own goal, having only admitted approximately half of the 18,000 people allotted.
