The U.S. Only Resettled 12 Ukrainian Refugees Last Month
On March 24, President Joe Biden announced that the United States would accept up to 100,000 displaced Ukrainians. The move came one month after Russian President Vladimir Putin launched a large-scale invasion of Ukraine, which has forced roughly 4.5 million people to flee the country to date.
Though the Biden administration's plan may seem like an appropriate response to the mounting migration crisis in Europe, there's no indication that the U.S. will be capable of processing that many fleeing Ukrainians. In March, just 12 Ukrainians came to the U.S. through the American refugee program.
