Secretary of State Mike Pompeo speaks about refugees as he makes a statement to the media, September 17, 2018, at the State Department in Washington.
Refugee resettlement does not include the number of people reaching America and applying for asylum.
Pompeo said they would join the over 800,000 asylum seekers already inside the United States and who are awaiting adjudication of their claims.
"The improved refugee policy of this administration serves the national interest of the United States, and expands our ability to help those in need all around the world", according to a statement by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
Most applicants to the United States refugee program spend at least three years being interviewed, undergoing biometric checks and medical exams, and filling out paperwork. Today's announcement of the Administration's intention means it has further reduced its promise to protect these vulnerable populations, backpedalling on promises to religious minorities, a commitment to leave no one behind who assisted US troops, and on strategic goals in some of the most volatile regions in the world. "This would be wrong".

Pompeo said the U.S.is "maintaining our enduring humanitarian commitments by working to assist refugees and other displaced people as close to their home countries as possible, thereby increasing the number of displaced people who have received aid and protection".
