Biden to lift refugee cap to 62,500


In a sign of the White House’s desire to repair frayed relations with refugee advocates, administration officials held a call with them after Monday’s announcement, on which they reinforced the themes Biden underscored in his statement, according to two people with knowledge of the conversation. They said the government would probably fall short of admitting 62,500 people but would try its best to aim for that number, the two people said. Like others, they spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe private talks.
