Immigrant advocacy groups breathed a collective sigh of relief. Krish O’Mara Vignarajah, president and chief executive of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, the nation’s largest faith-based nonprofit serving refugees, praised the move: “The new admissions ceiling reflects our core values as a welcoming nation, and finally aligns public policy with the unprecedented global need of millions forced from their home by violence, war, and persecution.” She added, “As leader of the free world, the United States has a moral obligation to address this crisis — it’s incredibly heartening to once again see an administration who takes our nation’s humanitarian responsibilities seriously.” Vignarajah also made clear that the refugee program is supported by an army of humanitarian groups that work on resettlement and provide services for refugees.
