The Trump administration is drastically cutting the number of refugees it lets into the country.

特朗普政府正大幅削减允许进入美国的难民人数。

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Monday that just 30,000 refugees will be allowed in the United States in 2019, the lowest number admitted since the program was established in 1980.

美国国务卿蓬佩奥周一宣布,2019年将有30,000名难民获准进入美国,这是自美国接收难民计划于1980年开始以来的最低数字。

The is a third less than the 45,000 cap President Donald Trump set for 2018.

这比特朗普总统在2018年设定的45,000个名额的上限减少三分之一。

Pompeo said the U.S. expects to process up to 30,000 refugees and 280,000 asylum seekers in fiscal year 2019, which begins on Oct. 1.

蓬佩奥表示,美国预计将在10月1日开始的2019财政年度处理不超过30,000名难民和280,000名寻求庇护者的申请。

Pompeo insisted that the figure “must be considered in the context of the many other forms of protection and assistance offered by the United States.”

蓬佩奥坚持认为,这个数字“必须考虑到美国提供的许多其他形式的保护和援助”。

He cited national security as the main reason behind the reduction, saying the system did not allow for properly vetting the refugees for possible ties to terrorism.

他指出减少难民准入人数的主要原因是基于国家安全,他说目前的系统无法对难民申请者进行适当审查,以防止与恐怖主义的牵连。

During former President Barack Obama's last year in office, his administration admitted nearly 85,000 refugees.

在前总统奥巴马任内的最后一年,美国政府接纳了将近85,000名难民。
