The Biden administration, fulfilling an earlier pledge, says the U.S. will take in 125,000 refugees and their families next year. Former President Donald Trump had capped the number at 15,000, a historic low.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration said the U.S. would take in 125,000 refugees and their families next year, fulfilling an earlier pledge to raise a cap that had been cut to a historic low under his predecessor.

Officials had earlier announced their intention to raise it to 125,000 for the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1.“The United States is committed to leading efforts to provide protection and promote durable solutions to humanitarian crises, to include providing resettlement for the most vulnerable,” the State Department said Monday in releasing the report.

In setting the target, the administration said it would focus on several key groups, including Central Americans, Afghans at risk due to their affiliation with the United States, LGBQT refugees and members of the predominantly Muslim Uighur ethnic group who are the targets of Chinese government campaign to eradicate their culture.

Despite the recent evacuations from Afghanistan, the U.S. will fall short of that number by the time the fiscal year ends on Sept. 30.“I applaud the Biden Administration for setting a target of 125,000 refugee admissions in the next fiscal year—a target my colleagues and I have been advocating for since April,” said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill. “And while I’m disappointed in the projected number of refugees to be admitted this fiscal year, I acknowledge the challenges the Biden Administration inherited with the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program due to the anti-immigrant actions of the previous Administration.”

_Politics That phrasing, refugees and their families, is kind of weird. Aren't the families of refugees also refugees? Why not just say refugee families? Based on what we saw in Texas. Black people from Haiti are probably not included in the count. Returning to the numbers under Obama.

Biden admin outlines response to surge of Haitian migrants at borderDHS Sec. Mayorkas delivers remarks at U.S.-Mexico border on surge of Haitian migrants: 'If you come to the United States illegally, you will be returned. Your journey will not succeed.' Stop just repeating this garbage! What they are doing IS NOT ILLEGAL. IT IS A GUARANTEED HUMAN RIGHT UNDER US AND INTERNATIONAL LAW. The actions by DHS, ICE, & CBP are not just illegal, they are also explicitly human rights violations. So much for being different from the Trump administration. No surprises there,for the 🌎 most undesirable inhabitants,those of African decent. Just saying.

Only wanted German pimps like his daddy ( grandfather), on the other hand I’m sure grandad wouldn’t like him grabbing the merchandise. Except the dark skinned refugees. The lighter colored refugees eventually have kids, who have kids, who assimilat. But dont let the darkies in!! Send them back! ....thats the current U.S. immigration policy in a nutshell

LorraineJDion I guess the Haitians are not included 😕 Why stop there, triple it… Apparently not Haitians Is that in addition to the 200,000 crossing the Mexico border every month? Good, thanks Joe! America could use more workers to replace the 676,059 we've lost to COVID. Fewer workers paying into the system in coming years will jeopardize social security payouts for those who've paid in, to finance their retirement. Japan is struggling with this.

To all the people that support this , how many of these refugees are you personally taking into your household? Now do the children being brought into sex trafficking. Numbers are through the roof with Biden. So many innocent lives ruined.
