From Capitol Public Radio in Sacramento this is inside I’m Beth through yak Sacramento has the largest refugee resettlement center in the United States. Did you know that more than 5200 refugees came into the county last year but the Trump administration announced this week that the new fiscal year beginning October 1st would see a change in that number , the number now admitted into the United States nationally will be limited to 30,000 and that’s the lowest number in more than 38 years . It is of course expected to impact what happens in this northern California region . Here’s a bit of Secretary of State Mike Pompeii message . This is from his announcement on Monday .
The United States anticipates processing up to 310,000 refugees and asylum seekers in fiscal year 2019.
We propose resettling up to 30,000 refugees. Under the new refugee as well as processing more than 280,000 asylum-seekers . They will join the over 800,000 asylum seekers who are already inside the United States and all are and who are awaiting adjudication of their claims .
I’m going to give you a few more numbers , and I realize it’s a lot of numbers , but will give some human context to this in a moment. Last year the cap on admissions was 45,000 and that had been the lowest number going back to 1980 but the US reportedly didn’t even meet that number only about 21,000 refugees were admitted in the studio with me now . Our representatives of 2 different agencies that work with refugees in our area , Deborah Ortiz’s , CEO of the group opening doors . Hi , Deborah , it’s always a pleasure to have you here thanks to having me there and from Sacramento Food Bank and family services , the director of family services is Genevieve Levy and Genevieve glad to welcome you back to bank is going to see . So give me some reaction to this announcement . It wasn’t a surprise was the specific number a surprise Deborah .
We anticipated a low number. You never know what the , how low the number is , but 30,000 was we were not surprised it certainly is , as you noted , the lowest number in history and it certainly doesn’t reflect the 62 million or so displaced across the world and the 22.5 that have already been million that have already been classified as refugees . So when you compare that with the EU , what the US is agreeing to accept . But we know will not actually arrive based on this last year it’s really profoundly disheartening .
Does that mean there will be a big drop in re-settlements in this region.
