WASHINGTON — The Obama administration has hit its goal of accepting 10,000 Syrian refugees this year, the White House announced Monday.
“Our 10,000th Syrian refugee will arrive this afternoon,” National Security Advisor Susan Rice said in a statement released by the White House. “On behalf of the President and his Administration, I extend the warmest of welcomes to each and every one of our Syrian arrivals, as well as the many other refugees resettled this year from all over the world.”
The tally marks a sixfold increase over the previous year, and comes a month ahead of the White House's initial schedule. More than 85,000 total refugees will be admitted to the U.S. this year.
Rice said the U.S. government has both increased refugee admissions and strengthened “the integrity of the refugee program, including its stringent security screening protocols,” over the past year.
The issue has emerged as a major political flashpoint over the past year.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has called for a freeze on refugees and a ban on accepting any refugees from states that have produced terrorists, a revision from his previous call to ban all Muslims from entering the U.S.
Hillary Clinton has called to expand President Obama's expansion of accepting refugees from war-torn Syria.
