Report to Congress on Proposed Refugee Admissions for Fiscal Year 2023
In 2022, Biden Administration falls 80% short Refugee admissions target. The U.S. resettled roughly 25,400 refugees in fiscal year 2022,
using only 20% of the 125,000 refugee spots President Biden allocated, data obtained by CBS News show. This year’s tally is more than double the number of refugee admissions in 2021, which saw a record low of 11,411 refugees. It also does not include at least 130,000 Afghans and Ukrainians who entered the U.S. under humanitarian parole, a program that grants temporary legal status to foreigners. In 2020, former President Trump reduced the refugee cap to 15,000.
