Refugee Arrivals to US Plummet to Lowest Level in a Decade 抵美难民人数跌至10年最低点

The number of refugees coming to the United States dipped sharply in July, dropping to the lowest level of monthly arrivals in more than a decade, amid temporary Supreme Court orders that largely supported the government’s efforts to curb the number of displaced people allowed into the country.

By Monday afternoon, 1,224 refugees had arrived according to U.S. State Department data -- less than any other month since the 2007 fiscal year.

The number plummeted in recent weeks after the Supreme Court court determined that only refugees with close family ties to the United States will be allowed in for now.

Asked about the sharp drop in July, a State Department spokesperson referred to the July 19 order by the Supreme Court that determined the “bona fide” relationship applied to relatives, and not to the agencies that resettle refugees in the U.S. -- a decision that blocks those refugees without family already here from traveling.

The sharp decline in July also comes as the U.S. reached a reduced limit for total arrivals set by President Donald Trump. That ceiling of 50,000 refugees for the fiscal year, which began Oct. 1, 2016, was reached July 12. Trump has insisted on that limit since January; it is a significant reduction over the Obama-set ceiling of 110,000.

As it stands, refugees will only continue to be resettled past that limit if they can prove they have 'bona fide' immediate family members already in the United States.

美国联邦最高法院的裁决在很大程度上支持了川普政府控制难民进入美国的努力,7月份来到美国的难民大幅下跌,是超过10年以来人数最少的一个月。

美国国务院的数据显示,截止到星期一下午,7月份抵达美国的难民人数为1224人,是2007财政年度以来的最低水平。

美国联邦最高法院此前裁决,目前只有跟美国居民存在紧密亲属关系的难民才能进入美国,从而造成了最近几周抵美难民人数的锐减。

被问到7月份难民人数大幅减少的问题时,国务院发言人表示,联邦最高法院7月19日裁决,“真实的”关系只适用于亲属,不适用于那些在美国安置难民的机构,从而有效阻止了那些在美国没有亲人的难民进入美国。

7月份难民人数大幅减少也跟美国接收难民已达到川普总统规定的人数上限有关。川普从今年1月就一直坚持,2016年10月1号开始的财政年度只接收5万难民,这一上限比川普前任奥巴马总统规定的11万人显著减少。美国接收5万难民的上限7月12日已经满额。

如果现行政策不变,超过这一上限后,只有那些能够证明跟美国居民有“真实”亲属关系的人才能以难民身份进入美国。
