IRC: President Biden’s refugee decision “Good for America, Good for Refugees”

BREAKING! The Biden Administration has increased the refugee admissions ceiling to 62,500 this year, and confirms its intention to increase the ceiling to 125,000 in October.

This announcement is important for America and for refugees. After four years of deeply damaging policies, families who have been separated can finally reunite and people fleeing war and persecution can continue to find safety in the United States. #RefugeesWelcome

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds today to the signing of an Emergency Presidential Determination on Refugee Admissions, which raises the historically low, Trump-era Fiscal Year 2021 admissions goal of 15,000 to 62,500. This announcement is important for America and for refugees. Ref...

For National Volunteer Week, we are highlighting some of our volunteers who have helped the IRC in Dallas this year.

Meet Donna!

Originally a volunteer in the Immigration department in 2017, Donna came forward to support the IRC remotely during the pandemic. She joined the Refugee Cash Assistance program and is known for her keen eye for detail, problem solving skills, and her eagerness to learn more. First hearing about the IRC while living in London at the beginning of the Syrian refugee crisis, she joined the Dallas office after attending an information session and has been helping ever since. A dependable volunteer during her years of service, she says “I keep coming back because it’s a great group of people to work with and because the work the IRC does makes a difference in the world.”

Meet Andres!

A member of the Mental Health team since August of 2020, Andres is a Ph.D. student at SMU studying clinical psychology. He has quickly proven to be an integral part of the department and has given specific trainings for both the IRC Dallas’ and IRC Arizona’s mental health programs. His skills in navigating assessments, intervention work, and crisis management make him stand out. Becoming involved with the IRC through a clinical training experience for his graduate program, his work at the IRC fits perfectly with his desire to work with refugees and asylum seekers from Central and South America. He says, “As a Spanish speaking clinician, I find great value in using my skills to help improve the wellbeing of those who are in distress.”

IRC deeply disappointed at Biden Administration decision to maintain Trump-era refugee cap - calls for increased admissions goal in light of unprecedented global need

The Biden administration will retain the historically low refugee admissions goal set by the Trump administration of 15,000 people for the current fiscal year retreating from the 62,500 announced in February. With more than 35,000 refugees who have passed security clearances and over 100,000 waiting in the pipeline for years to be reunited, a refugee admissions goal of 15,000 leaves thousands of people in limbo and in need of safety.
