John Kerry: Administration Is 'Committed' To Taking In More Refugees Amid Syrian Crisis


The U.S. set a ceiling of 70,000 refugees total for the current fiscal year, which ends on Sept. 30. But groups devoted to resettling refugees have long said that number should be far higher, and are now calling for the U.S. to take in 100,000 Syrians next fiscal year, along with 100,000 people from other countries. Germany expects to take in 800,000 refugees this year. By contrast, the U.S. has accepted only 1,500 Syrians since the beginning of the war in 2011.


The U.S. contributes significant aid to refugees, including about $4 billion for migrant camps in Europe, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Tuesday .
