US refugee admissions protect vulnerable - Biden

United States President Joe Biden on Twitter commented on his decision to increase the former administration's refugee admissions cap and said that the program protects those "most vulnerable."

"The US Refugee Admissions Program embodies our commitment to protect the most vulnerable. It's a statement about who we are, and who we want to be. That's why today, I revised our annual cap from 15,000 — a historic low set by the previous administration — to 62,500," Biden wrote in a tweet.

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.
