Joe Biden has caved to the radical left and will raise the cap on refugees to 62,500 this fiscal year.
The move comes after a wave of outrage over his initial decision to keep the Trump-era ceiling of 15,000 admissions in place.
Now, Biden will quadruple the number of refugees allowed into the United States this year.
“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 said.
The U.S. Refugee Admissions Program embodies our commitment to protect the most vulnerable. It’s a statement about who we are, and who we want to be. That’s why today, I revised our annual cap from 15,000 — a historic low set by the previous administration — to 62,500.
