CNA Staff, Nov 12, 2020 / 05:00 pm (CNA).- Presumptive president-elect Joe Biden says he plans for the U.S. to resettle far more refugees in 2021 than in recent years. The move would be a reversal of standing Trump administration policy.

In an announcement for the 40th anniversary celebration of Jesuit Refugee Services (JRS), a Catholic organization which supports and helps resettle refugees in the U.S., Biden stated his intent to multiply the number of refugees accepted by the U.S. in 2021.

“The Biden-Harris administration will restore America’s historic role in protecting the vulnerable and defending the rights of refugees everywhere, in raising our annual refugee admission target to 125,000,” Biden said on Thursday evening.
