Trump Proposes a Refugee Ceiling of 18,000 for FY2020

The White House released a document noting that President Trump is proposing a refugee ceiling of 18,000 for FY2020. Further, the president also issued an executive order instructing the federal government to settle refugees only in those jurisdictions in which both the state and local governments have consented to receive refugees under the DOS Reception and Placement Program. CNN reports that the proposed refugee ceiling would mark a “new historic low” and that the executive order could allow states and local jurisdictions to deny refugees entry.
