Supreme Court is giving permission for the refugee ceiling to be surpassed for first time

Refugee Resettlement Watch

I know, I am a broken record on this issue and that it is more interesting to read about the rich kids at Harvardwanting refugees and about Muslim refugees facing trialskipping out on bail, but we have to address the boring numbers stuff too.

Here is what we know:

~The President sets the CEILING for refugee admissions each year (the ceiling is a cap!).

Supremes have re-written refugee law!

~President Obama set the ceiling for FY17 at 110,000 in his final months in office (he never set a ceiling that high in his previous 7 years).

~Donald Trump’s EO reset it at 50,000.

~As of today we are at 49,803 according toWrapsnet.

~The Supreme Court confirmed the 50,000 with a caveat.  Anyone who could prove a “bona fide relationship” with a relative in the US or to an “entity” could come in above the 50,000 cap.
