Obama Plans To Let In 110,000 Refuges
President Barack Obama has made the plan to increase the number of refugees accepted into the United States by 29%. From 2016 to 2017, the number of refugees will increase from 85,000 to 110,000. Obama, as well as the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, have agreed that America needs to be involved with the Syrian refugee crisis. President Obama will continue to have refugees complete extensive background checks to ensure safety for American citizens. The White House announced in September that the U.S. accepted its 10,000th Syrian refugee of the year, which Obama is proud of.
