Ukrainian Refugees – The statistics
271,000 Ukrainian refugees have been admitted to the United States, significantly above the stated goal of 100,000 declared by the Biden Administration.
Roughly 117,000, of those who were admitted came via the Uniting for Ukraine program, which allows American citizens to actively sponsor Ukrainians and provide financial support.
About 150,000 Ukrainians came to the U.S. via other methods, including traditional refugee visas and migration across the southern border. The US government plans to continue to support Ukrainian refugees as the war in Ukraine continues.
“DHS remains committed to supporting Ukrainians in the United States, and we continue to explore opportunities to provide avenues for humanitarian relief and protection for Ukrainians fleeing Russia’s unprovoked war,” a DHS spokesperson said.
