In 2017, the current Presidential Administration did everything it could to radically decrease the number of refugees admitted to the United States. The new year does not promise to be any easier. With the historically low ‘Presidential Determination’ of 45,000 for fiscal year 2018, Neighbors for Refugees (NFR), our partnership organization, will continue to fight to ensure that the U.S. actually meets its refugee admissions goal and that the U.S. refugee resettlement program is supported at the national, state and local levels. NFR looks forward to joining forces with their partners, HIAS and Catholic Charities, again this year as we collectively stand up and speak out in support of refugees and this country’s proud history by welcoming more refugees to Westchester.
