THANK YOU, PRESIDENT BIDEN for your stand on Refugees!Thank you, President Biden for your pledge to admit more refugees to the United States in 2021.
Historically the United States have accepted around 100k refugees each year. The Trump administration was able to decrease refugee arrivals from nearly 85,000 in fiscal year 2016 to fewer than 12,000 in fiscal year 2020. This is a historically low number of refugees admitted to USA in a year since the inception of this program.
President Joe Biden pledged that he would raise the annual refugee admissions ceiling to 125,000. This will not only be beneficial to the US economy but will also be the morally right thing to do. There are over 70 million refugees in the world today. They have been driven out of their homes and languish in camps surrounded by barbed wires. They have nowhere to go and their children have not future. Maybe some of them will see their dreams come true in this great land of America. Today, America is the greatest country on earth. This exalted position goes hand-in-hand with the responsibility to look after the weak. I feel it is our moral obligation to stand by the most downtrodden at the time of their greatest need.
Thank you, President Biden!
