Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service also praised Biden's move and another decision to reverse the previous administration’s restrictions on immigration from a few Muslim-majority nations.
LIRS President and CEO Krish O’Mara Vignarajah said that the Biden administration's actions show that “refugees are welcome here and are a blessing to our communities.”
“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 stated.
“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.”
