WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House said on Monday it has every intention of raising the limit on U.S. refugee reception and will do so by May 15 if not earlier.
On Friday, President Joe Biden signed an order curbing U.S. refugee admissions this year to the historic lowest 15,000 limit set under his predecessor Donald Trump.
White House spokesman Jen Psaki said: “This is always just the beginning. “We … all intend to increase the limit and announce that by May 15th.”
