Episcopal Migration Ministries commends the Biden Administration’s Presidential Determination of 125,000 refugee admissions in FY24, maintaining the PD of the last two years. This decision reflects our country’s ongoing commitment to providing refuge and a fresh start to those fleeing persecution and violence around the world.
In these unprecedented times, when over 108.4 million people have been forcibly displaced from their homes and over 29.3 million refugees are under UNHCR’s mandate, we have an obligation to provide humanitarian protection to the world’s most vulnerable. Together, we can continue to build a world where refuge and opportunity are accessible to all, and where the spirit of welcome and inclusivity thrives.
