"The Trump administration said Thursday it will reduce the number of refugees allowed to resettle in the United States to a historic low – permitting no more than 18,000 people fleeing war, violence and persecution across the globe to make a new home in America.
The administration also plans to change the way refugee slots are divvied up and only allow resettlement in communities that "consent" to take them, a controversial change that critics said could spur resentment against refugees and the local officials who welcome them.
... Stephen Yale-Loehr, a law school professor and immigration expert at Cornell University, said the administration's justification for slashing refugee admissions – blaming the asylum backlog– is faulty. He said that fewer people are being at the U.S.-Mexico border now than in 2000.
"Moreover, the Trump administration has aggravated the backlog in asylum cases by failing to hire enough immigration judges," Yale-Loehr said."
