The Trump administration announced this week a proposal to further limit the number of refugees allowed to enter the U.S.
Starting this upcoming fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1, only 30,000 refugees will be admitted into the U.S. The announcement is another blow to resettlement agencies, including groups in Chicago.
The decision comes after the administration capped the number of new refugees at 45,000 for the current fiscal year — a historic low. The ceiling, or cap, is announced annually.
