Trump Administration Slashing Refugee Admissions to 30K Annual Cap

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration will slash the refugee cap to a low that hasn’t been seen since enactment of the United States Refugee Act of 1980, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed today.

The administration previously lowered the number of refugees admitted from 110,000 when President Trump took office to 45,000, though the number admitted last fiscal year did not near that cap. That is being cut again to a 30,000 cap, Pompeo told reporters at the State Department.

Justin is licking his lips no doubt…
