The Associated Press reports that, after a slow start, it appears increasingly likely that the Obama administration will hit its goal of admitting 10,000 Syrian refugees into the United States before the end of September 2016. DOS figures show that 2,340 Syrian refugees arrived last month in the United States, and total admissions for FY2016 come to about 7,900. If the pace from June and July continues this month, the 10,000 target should be reached prior to President Obama’s scheduled visit to the United Nations in late September to urge world leaders to admit more refugees and increase funding for relief organizations.
