Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Sunday said it will be "very hard to meet" President Biden's pledge to resettle 62,000 refugees by the end of this fiscal year.
During an interview on ABC's "This Week" Blinken blamed the "broken system" under the Trump administration for why the Biden administration likely won't be able to meet their pledge of resettling 62,000 refugees in the United States.
"One of the biggest problems we faced was inheriting a broken system," Blinken told anchor Martha Raddatz. "And the refugee system that we found was not in a place, did not have the resources, the means to effectively process as many people as we hoped."
Blinken continued by saying that Biden's decision to cite the "initial directive" will "start the process of actually bringing people in" and "lifting restraints that the previous administration had imposed."
