Today, there are 65 million people displaced from their homes across the world, 22 million of which are registered refugees. Of those, only less than 1 percent — the most critical cases — are resettled. These include brave people who helped our armed forces at the risk of their own lives, women and children in grave danger, and people with urgent medical concerns who cannot be treated in camps. In fiscal 2017, the International Rescue Committee offices in Baltimore and Silver Spring were supposed to welcome around 1,500 refugees — but only around 1,000 were able to arrive past the Trump administration’s measures. This year is sizing up to be worse for those we’ve promised to protect: IRC anticipates fewer than 700 refugees. At the national level, only 5,323 refugees arrived to the U.S. in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018, or less than 12 percent of the 45,000 refugee cap. We estimate around 20,000 refugees will ultimately make it to the United States at this rate — an abysmal departure from American moral and diplomatic leadership.
