Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Biden vows to increase refugee cap”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

President Biden said Saturday that he plans to increase the cap on the number of refugees allowed to enter the United States and appeared to blame a “crisis” on the southern border for complicating the issue.

“We’re going to increase the number,” Mr. Biden told reporters after golfing in Delaware. “The problem was that the refugee part was working on the crisis that ended up on the border with young people. We couldn’t do two things at once. But now we are going to increase the number.”

Mr. Biden and his administration have persistently avoided using the word “crisis” to describe the influx of migrants trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border.
