US bishops’ spokesman decries low rate of admission for refugees
March 27, 2018
CWN Editor's Note: The chairman of the US bishops’ committee on migration has expressed concern about the low number of refugees being accepted into the country. Bishop Joe Vazquez of Austin, Texas, observed that only 9,500 refugees have been admitted, halfway through the fiscal year. A presidential directive has allowed for 45,000 refugees in fiscal 2018, the lowest figure since 1980; yet the actual number accepted is well below the pace that would reach that figure.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
