ㅤ"Pompeo cited national security as a major factor in setting the new refugee ceiling, describing the previous asylum system as ‘defective’ in not properly vetting foreign nationals for potential terrorist ties or other security risks. He also stressed the need to return ‘integrity’ to the overall U.S. asylum system.
ㅤ’The improved refugee policy of this administration serves the national interest of the United States,’ Pompeo said. ‘We are and continue to be the most generous nation in the world.’"
