If you needed yet another reason to hope President Trump defeats Joe Biden in the 2020 general election, here you go. As usual, the left is doing everything in its power to cripple the US.

From Religion News Service:

(RNS) — President-elect Joe Biden announced he will raise the number of refugees allowed into the United States to 125,000 in his first year in office, a major reversal from President Donald Trump's steep cuts to the U.S. refugee program.

It's not the first time Biden has made that pledge. He previously floated the number in a statement he made during the summer on World Refugee Day.

More from Breitbart:

"The United States has long stood as a beacon of hope for the downtrodden and the oppressed, a leader of resettling refugees in our humanitarian response," Biden said in a prerecorded video for a virtual celebration of the 40th anniversary of Jesuit Refugee Service.

"I promise, as president, I will reclaim that proud legacy for our country," Biden continued. "The Biden-Harris administration will restore America's historic role in protecting the vulnerable and defending the rights of refugees everywhere and raising our annual refugee admission target to 125,000."
