The U.S. has slashed its refugee intake. Syrians fleeing war are most affected

Posted on by

The number of Syrian refugees allowed into the United States in fiscal 2016 was 12,587.

In fiscal 2018, the United States admitted 62.

The drop is largely the result of the Trump administration slashing the total number of refugees allowed into the country each year and because of enhanced screenings for refugees from 11 countries, including Syria.
