President Lowers Refugee Cap

Recommended Posts

The White House
For Immediate Release

Washington, DC – President Kyle Fitzgerald spoke to the press after signing an executive order to lower the annual refugee cap from 110,000 to 45,000.

“In the age of automation, it is more important than ever for our country to re-evaluate our immigration priorities. As automation continues to claim jobs, we must move our immigration system away from one that admits a large number of unskilled people to one that admits a smaller number of highly skilled and specialized applicants. We began this process two years ago with the passage of legislation that eliminated the diversity lottery and ended the practice of chain migration. We continue this process today with an executive order that reduces our annual refugee cap from 110,000 annually to a more reasonable cap of 45,000. Combined with the merit-based immigration reform passed last session, this will reduce our immigration numbers to more historical levels and will ensure that we aren’t bringing in more unskilled immigrants than the economy of tomorrow can reasonably accommodate. This will also ensure that each refugee is given more resources and attention. The process of transporting and assimilating a refugee into the United States is very expensive. This new cap means we can spend more than two dollars per refugee for each dollar we are currently spending. This order will ensure that America’s interests are put first and our refugees are being set up for success.”
