President Biden increased the limit of refugee admissions to 62,500 for this fiscal year on Monday following intense pressure from fellow Democrats.

Biden increased the refugee cap just weeks after he announced his intent to maintain a 15,000 refugee cap first imposed by former President Donald Trump. The initial limit drew outrage from prominent Democrats who accused Biden of moving too slowly to reverse Trump-era refugee entry policies.

"This erases the historically low number set by the previous administration of 15,000, which did not reflect America's values as a nation that welcomes and supports refugees," Biden said in a statement. "The new admissions cap will also reinforce efforts that are already underway to expand the United States' capacity to admit refugees, so that we can reach the goal of 125,000 refugee admissions that I intend to set for the coming fiscal year."

This is a breaking story. Check back for updates.

There are enough far-left loons who do want it, though.

And they seem to be the ones wagging Biden's tail.

Democrats are for themselves, and only for themselves. They will do anything to stay in power.

This hurts the average American Citizen, tax money will be given to foreigners instead of benefiting those who paid the taxes

Some here place far more value on citizens of other countries than they do American citizens.

How much money do we give to foreign countries?

Just as an example...we give 3.1 billion a year to Israel.  Our total foreign aid in 2017 was 48 billion dollars.

The way Democrats are ignoring the crisis on the border, you'd think it was like 5 people trying to get here.
