Ann Corcoran: In September, The POTUS Determines The Refugee Numbers Allowed–How About “Zero”?


Ann Corcoran at Refugee Resettlement Watch:

In the month of September the President, by law, sends a ‘determination‘ to Congress about the size and scope of the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program for the upcoming fiscal year which begins October 1st.

This is the year he could really accomplish something if he suspends the program and forces Congress to review it.

(It won’t happen in 2018 because it’s an election year.)

But, those of you who follow RRW daily are probably sick of hearing about that.[More]

The point being that if the President, by law (the Refugee Act of 1980) sets the number of refugees, zero is probably a good number.
