More refugees, less admitted to the USA

This video from the USA says about itself:

31 December 2017

The United States State Department has informed refugee agencies to downsize their U.S. operations despite the massive on-going refugee crisis. Cenk Uygur, Hannah Cranston and Mark Thompson, of The Young Turks, break it down.

“The U.S. State Department has told refugee agencies it will sharply pare back the number of offices across the country authorized to resettle people in 2018 as President Donald Trump cuts the number of refugees allowed into the United States.

The announcement was made at a Dec. 1 meeting in Washington with State Department officials and representatives from nine major refugee agencies, several executives of the agencies said.

Advocates said the decision is likely to lead to the closure of dozens of resettlement offices around the country, potentially leaving some refugees without access to services that help them integrate into American life. Several state refugee coordinators said they had also been made aware of the closures.”
