The US Will Admit Fewer Refugees: President Donald Trump has been progressively cutting the admission quota since he took office in early 2017. His predecessor, Barack Obama, had set a maximum of 110,000 refugees in 2016 for the fiscal year 2017.
The United States will admit a maximum of 30,000 refugees in the 2019 fiscal year, which represents a decrease of 15,000 from the current period, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reported today.
Despite the decline for the period from October 2018 to September 2019, the United States remains one of the most generous countries in terms of refugee admission, said Pompeo.
The Secretary of State argued that the decision is due to issues of national security and stressed that the country must ensure that anyone who enters its territory is properly investigated beforehand.

The restrictive policy that characterizes the Trump Administration has earned it strong criticism from its opponents, but it has also reported a good amount of support from a certain sector of the population.
