This September, the President determined the U.S. will only accept up to 15,000 refugees in 2021, a record low. Before the current administration, Presidents ranging from Reagan to Bush to Obama have set the ceiling at at least 100,000. In 2020, less than 10,000 refugees have been admitted to this country.
Despite the limitations of the administration, we know that the U.S. continues to offer refuge for many and our communities gain a great deal from refugee contributions.
Join the Hello Neighbor Network Roundtable with grassroots nonprofit leaders to learn more about the national climate and hear examples of some of the most innovative programs happening for refugees and immigrants in communities across the country.
