This is the February 27, 2020 hearing on "Current State of the U.S. Refugee Program," held before the Subcommittee on Immigration and Citizenship of the U.S. House Committee on the Judiciary. From the opening statement of Zoe Lofgren: "A few weeks ago, from now marks the 40th anniversary of the Refugee Act, a bipartisan piece of legislation that established the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program and initiated America's commitment to refugee resettlement. This fiscal year also marks the lowest refugee admissions number since the passage of the Refugee Act of 1980, at a scant 18,000-a fraction of the historic average of 95,000 refugees per year. [...] I look forward to hearing from today's witnesses and their perspectives on the current State of the U.S. refugee program, its impact on the future of the program, and the importance of refugees to our committee." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Barbara Strack, Mario Eduardo Dorsonville-Rodriguez, Biar Atem, and Lora Ries.
