Trump administration considering lower refugee limits

🕐 1 min read

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration is considering a further reduction in the number of refugees allowed into the United States.

President Donald Trump previously ordered a reducton in refugee admissions and is now weighing further limitation on the number of refugees that would be allowed into the country during the next fiscal year, according to administration officials who spoke on condition of anonymity in order to discuss internal deliberations.

Cabinet officials reportedly are divided as they weigh the costs and potential security risks associated with the program.

The Department of Homeland Security would like to see the number of refugees allowed into the country reduced to 40,000. The State Department, which oversees the program, has recommended the number be kept at 50,000.
