Citing safety and security concerns, the Trump administration said Wednesday that it will cap refugee admissions at 45,000 in the 2018 fiscal year, a historic low that refugee advocates say will exclude many of the world’s vulnerable populations.

Under the proposal to Congress, an estimated 19,000 refugees would be admitted from Africa; 17,000 from east South Asia; 5,000 from East Asia; 2,000 from Europe and Central Asia and 1,500 from Latin America and the Caribbean.
