President Barack Obama has set a goal to admit 110,000 refugees into the United States during the 2017 fiscal year, which is about 10,000 more than his initial goal and about 30 percent higher than this year.

美国总统奥巴马计划在2017财年将美国接纳的难民人数增加为11万。这比他原先计划的人数多1万人,也比今年增加30%。

Secretary of State John Kerry announced the new resettlement goal during a closed session with members of the House and Senate judiciary committees Tuesday, according to media reports.

据媒体报导,美国国务卿克里星期二在众议院和参议院司法委员会的闭门会议上宣布了这项新的安置目标。

The last time the U.S. set a resettlement goal as high as Obama’s was during Bill Clinton’s presidency in 1995, when Clinton agreed to accept 112,000 refugees. During the 2015 fiscal year, the U.S. admitted just 70,000 refugees.

美国上一次定下像奥巴马设定的这么高的安置目标是在1995年比尔·克林顿担任总统期间。当时他同意接纳11万2000名难民。美国在2015财年只接纳了7万难民。

The report, which was obtained by Politico, said the Obama administration wants to admit a “significantly higher” number of refugees from Syria next year.

据美国政治新闻网报道,奥巴马政府希望在明年接纳“人数明显增多的”叙利亚难民。

Obama will likely formally announce the refugee plan before he attends a summit on refugees during next week’s General Assembly meeting at the United Nations.

奥巴马下周出席联合国大会关于难民问题的峰会前,可能会正式宣布这项难民安置计划。
