Biden kept Trump's refugee cap despite officials' warnings - report

United States President Joe Biden went against his top officials' advice when he decided to keep the former administration's refugee admissions cap, according to The Washington Post.

The move overruled Secretary of State Antony Blinken and was reportedly made with worries about a surge in undocumented migrants at the country's southern border.

Former President Donald Trump had criticized the current head of state for pledging to increase refugee admissions by a whopping 700 percent ahead of taking office, even though that number would bring the ceiling back to the figure seen before his own cap.
