- Statement from Aaron Rippenkroeger, President & CEO, Refugee Services of Texas on the 2018 Presidential Determination "The recent announcement by the White House to cap the number of refugee arrivals at 45,000 for the 2018 fiscal year represents the lowest admissions figure for the United States in decades and puts the lives of tens of thousands of people needlessly at risk. This shameful decision is not based in fact and will also harm America and the international community. Refugees come to the United States fleeing persecution and violence and to build a better life. They are the most thoroughly vetted people in the history of our country and arrive only after authorization by multiple security agencies. No lethal act of terrorism has ever been committed in the U.S. by a refugee. Refugees are not a danger and to intimate otherwise is a heartless falsehood. Studies show that refugee families who arrive to the U.S. quickly become self-sufficient, productive, tax-paying citizens. The U.S. Administration's own research recently concluded that refugees contributed $63 billion more to the U.S. economy than any benefits received over the past decade. They also strengthen the cultural diversity that has been core to this country's success from its earliest days."
