In addition to the above efforts, the total United States humanitarian assistance worldwide was more than eight billion dollars in fiscal year 2017, more than any other country, Pompeo said.

"What's more", Miles continued, "the USA has a direct moral responsibility to open its doors, not slam them shut, given that our own nation is an active combatant in numerous very conflicts and humanitarian crises driving the global refugee crisis".
Some will characterize the refugee ceiling as the sole barometer of America's commitment to vulnerable people around the world. "It is unacceptable that the United States is asking governments like Turkey, Jordan, and Uganda, among many others, to provide safety for literally millions of refugees, while the administration, in turn, announces the lowest refugee ceiling in US history". The administration's departure from history sets a risky precedent at a time of great global crisis.
The U.S. Administration today announced its intention to lower annual refugeeadmissions to 30,000 in FY2019, a 33 percent drop from 2018's record-low ceiling of 45,000. The announcement comes despite calls from global humanitarian groups that this year's cap of 45,000 was too low.

According to the New York Times, Miller joined forces with President Donald Trump's chief of staff John Kelly to push for an even lower cap of 25,000 refugees, and Pompeo ultimately accepted Miller's xenophobic push for a "deep cut".
Betsy Fisher, policy director at the International Refugee Assistance Project, said the Trump administration is claiming, falsely, that the pullback is over security.
Since the beginning of 2018, Trump's Department of State has admitted 2,341 Muslimrefugees to the United States.
Officials say refugee settlement in the United States is very expensive. Maintaining the administration's stance from previous year, Pompeo said the government would be diverting resources from refugeeadmissions to handle the asylum backlog.
After they are resettled, refugees continue to undergo security checks in the United States for five years or more.
