The Trump administration is considering whether to further reduce the number of refugees allowed into the United States to fewer than 50,000. That’s according to The New York Times, which reports the plan has the support of homeland security officials and senior White House adviser Stephen Miller. President Trump has already capped the number of refugees resettled annually in the U.S. at 50,000—less than half of the 110,000 refugees admitted under President Barack Obama.
