DHS official: ‘We’re not looking for more refugees’

The Obama administration said Wednesday it was “committed to providing” 100,000 temporary visas to people seeking asylum in the U.S. for families.

The announcement comes amid renewed scrutiny of the resettlement program, which has drawn criticism from conservatives who say the administration oversteps its legal authority.

A group of conservative activists who had sought the temporary visas called for Trump to be impeached.

They have been circulating an online petition, urging the president to end the program immediately and suspend the U-visa program.

“The Trump administration has no business using taxpayer dollars to support a resettlement program that is clearly not authorized by law,” said the petition, signed by FreedomWorks President Mark Meckler and members of the Congressional Leadership Fund, a political action committee.
