100,000 Ukrainian refugees will soon be allowed to live in the U.S. Philly resettlement agencies are ready.
“Any number is great news,” said Cathryn Miller-Wilson, executive director of HIAS Pennsylvania, the immigrant-assistance organization in Philadelphia. “A hundred thousand is a great start. We could do more.”
She cautioned: It’s one thing for the administration to announce a big number of refugee admissions amid the Russian invasion. It’s quite another, and harder, to make sure the United States has hired sufficient personnel to process the applications and vet the refugees.
