Washington: President Joe Biden introduced Monday that he’s elevating the variety of refugees allowed into america to 62,500, up from the 15,000 cap imposed by his predecessor Donald Trump.

The change follows heavy criticsm of Biden from allies for his earlier resolution to maintain the Trump-era limits.

The 15,000 cap “didn’t mirror America’s values as a nation that welcomes and helps refugees,” Biden stated in an announcement.
