Advocates warn of "massive decrease" in U.S. refugee admissions

Wednesday 08:06 GMT

“This is a massive decrease from the numbers we have seen over the past two years,” said Jennifer Sime, senior vice president of U.S. programs at the International Rescue Committee. “This is a really sad situation because it would be the only time the U.S. has resettled so few, not even after 9/11 were there so few refugees coming into the country,” she added.

A State Department official said refugee admissions rarely happen at a steady pace and in many years start out slow and increase.
