Mayor Miro Weinberger Responds to President Trump Decision to Limit Refugees Allowed into the United States to 30,000

Burlington, VT – Today, Mayor Miro Weinberger released the following statement in response to the Trump Administration decision to limit the number of refugees entering the United States to 30,000:

“In 1939, in one of the country’s most regrettable acts, the United States refused entry to the German ocean liner, The St. Louis, forcing over 900 Jews fleeing persecution to return to Europe where hundreds of them ultimately perished. With this announcement by the Administration on Monday, President Trump has refused safe harbor to more than 80 St. Louisships. By reducing the number of refugees that can legally resettle in the US to 27% of the level it was during President Obama’s last year, President Trump has hurt communities like Burlington that benefit from the driving ambition, culture, and labor of immigrants, further lowered our moral standing in the world, and shown once again that he has no idea what has made America great.”
