Washington, DC – In September 2019, the administration slashed the refugee admissions goal (Presidential Determination) for the coming year to 18,000 and instituted four admissions priorities. In an effort to hold the administration accountable to welcoming 18,000 refugees, RCUSA has released a new quarterly report detailing admissions numbers. This fourth report also provides a discussion on how the United States should be resuming refugee resettlement.
