Some Trump administration officials have proposed not allowing any refugees to settle in the U.S. next year, according to a recent report in Politico. 

Catholic Family Center in Rochester, a community-based family resource center, condemns that idea, saying that refugees are vital to economic growth.

The refugee resettlement program has an annual set limit on the number of people who can be admitted into the country. The president decides that number.
