Joe Biden Overrules Ilhan Omar, Will Keep Trump’s Historically Low Refugee Cap In Place

President Biden snubbed Ilhan Omar and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi when he signed an order speeding refugee admissions to America but kept the 15,000 a cap set by the Trump administration. This is a historically low number and Biden had promised to raise the limit substantially.

He also did not raise the ceiling to at least 62,500 as Democrats including Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), asked him to do.

“Having fought for four years against the Trump Administration’s full-scale assault on refugee resettlement in the United States, we were relieved to see you commit to increasing our refugee resettlement numbers so early in your Administration,” Ilhan Omar wrote to Biden along with Reps. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) and Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.).

“But until the Emergency Presidential Determination is finalized, our refugee policy remains unacceptably draconian and discriminatory,” they added.

“I can assure anyone who has concerns that the president remains committed to this issue. He is somebody who believes that refugees, that immigrants are the heart and soul of our country, and they have been for decades,” Biden spokesperson jen Psaki said.

“And it certainly is an issue he remains committed to. But I don’t have an update on the timeline of the signing,” she added.

From NBC:

Biden faced swift backlash from Democrats in Congress, who had been publicly calling on him to follow through with his commitment.

“The United States has a proud, bipartisan tradition of providing refugees protection through resettlement,” Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in a statement. “Failing to issue a new Determination undermines your declared purpose to reverse your predecessor’s refugee policies.”

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., called Biden’s decision “shameful.”

“As a refugee, I know finding a home is a matter of life or death for children around the world,” she wrote on Twitter.

    An additional issue is that video games can be serious naturally with the main focus on finding out rather than enjoyment. Although, there’s an entertainment part to keep children engaged, every single game is usually designed to focus on a specific experience or programs, such as mathmatical or technology. Thanks for your publication.

    According to Mr Hancock, ‘social distancing rules are very important and people should follow them’ Well, you don’t need to disconnect yourself from the Internet just to play the hidden game.

It basically serves the same job as Final Fantasy Brave Exvius except for Tales fans. The game includes a story where you build a team with a bunch of characters from all of the Tales games. It uses turn based combat and it’s definitely not the same as the action RPG combat of a typical Tales game. Still, it has that charming look and feel of a Tales game and the story line isn’t half bad. It’s relatively F2P friendly, although not as friendly as some others on the list. It’s definitely good for Tales fans and maybe people wanting to get into the Tales universe. In order to understand the hero-villain concept better, we have to take a tour of the virtual world of fiction and entertainment where there are numerous characters waiting to be discovered through numerous games like Idle Heroes, a classic tale of good Vs evil.
