US to accept 100,000 Ukrainian refugees

The World

The White House announced on Thursday that the United States will accept up to 100,000 refugees from Ukraine. More than 3.6 million Ukrainians have fled their country since the Russian invasion began one month ago, most bound for Poland. The Biden administration says it will use a range of legal pathways, including the US refugee admissions program, to bring Ukrainian refugees to the US. Marco Werman speaks with Julia Gelatt of the Migration Policy Institute about what those legal pathways are and what ripple effect that could have on other refugees coming to the United States.
