Blinken celebrates Biden's refugee cap increase

United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken (pictured) in a statement commended President Joe Biden's decision to increase the country's refugee admissions cap.

He claimed the move affirms the nation's commitment to humanitarian values and stands as a reflection of core American values. "As part of addressing the broader migration crises around the world, our refugee admissions program must be restored so that those fleeing persecution can enter the United States," Blinken noted.

The White House previously announced that the president decided to raise the refugee admissions ceiling to 62,500 for Fiscal Year 2021 after a "historic low" was set by the former administration.
