The Presidential Executive Order signed on January 27th has suspended the U.S. Refugee Resettlement program for the next 4 months. In addition the Syrian Resettlement Program was suspended indefinitely. If or when the program resumes the number of individuals who will come through the U.S. Refugee Resettlement program will be reduced from 110,000 to just 50,000.
