Biden said in a statement that the action “will raise the historically low number set by the previous administration” which he said did not reflect the American values as a nation that welcomes refugees. He said “it’s important to take this action today to remove any lingering doubt in the minds of refugees around the world”.
Last month, the Biden administration fumbled an announcement around the cap. Officials initially said it would keep former president Donald Trump’s cap of 15,000, but after intense criticism from fellow democrats, later said it would follow through on Biden’ campaign promise to allow more refugees into the country this fiscal year.
