The Biden administration today announce plans to welcome 100,000 Ukrainian refugees and others affected by the Russian war on Ukraine. However, not all will be admitted through the refugee program or during this fiscal year, and a full range of pathways will be utilized, including humanitarian parole and immigrant or non-immigrant visas. In addition to announcing the Ukrainian refugee program, Biden, who is in Brussels Thursday and part of Friday for meetings with NATO, the Group of Seven, and the European Council, will also announce more than $1 billion in humanitarian assistance for those affected by Russia’s war with Ukraine, as well as more than $11 billion over the next five years to help with food security threats.
