US to raise refugee admissions cap to 125K

United States President Joe Biden intends to live up to his campaign promise by raising the refugee admissions cap to 125,000 for the government’s budget year starting October 1, the US State Department confirmed.

Earlier this year, Biden said he would keep the Trump administration’s record-low refugee cap of 15,000, but after receiving criticism the cap was later raised to 62,500.

Former US President Donald Trump already condemned his successor for pledging to increase refugee admissions by a whopping 700 percent, even though that number would bring the ceiling back to the figure seen before his administration's cap.
