Refugee resettlement by the numbers: FY17 vs. FY18 arrivals comparison

The Fiscal Year 2018 (FY18) refugee admissions level was set at 45,000—a historic low. Eleven months through FY18, the United States had only admitted 19,899 refugees—less than half this level. This represents a more than 60% drop compared to the same FY17 period when 51,392 refugees were resettled. The U.S. is on track to resettle no more than 22,000 refugees in FY18.
