Migration US Slashes the Number of Refugees It Will Allow into the Country

On September 17, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the United States will admit no more than 30,000 refugees for Fiscal Year 2019 – the lowest ceiling for refugee admissions since the Refugee Act was enacted in 1980. In response to the announcement, Kevin Appleby, senior director of international migration policy for the Center for Migration Studies, stated, "Reducing the refugee number to another all-time low signals to the world that we are abdicating our moral leadership, which undermines our foreign policy and national security interests."
