HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra reportedly tried to pressurize to withstand the historically low refugee caps set during the Trump Administration. The retaliation has come after fear of overwhelming the Office of Refugee Resettlement. He replenished the fact that raising the caps on refugees would have its bearings.
“He cares about raising the caps — but let’s take one challenge at a time,” one person close to Becerra told the news outlet. “Emotionally, he’s there. But he’s always a pragmatist.” Several people familiar with the matter and close allies to the Secretary said that he was diabolical in his statements very often.
He initially supported raising the caps on refugees initiative but capitulated his stance as he believed that such a decision should only be made when his agency had the appropriate resources to deal with the higher number of admissions. The White House officials have allegedly scrutinized him who have worried about Becerra’s lax in taking efficient decisions regarding the HHS and responding to the tormenting of the migrant workers, and the children.
Towards the reeling of inheriting significant challenges, from severe capacity limitations ascertained due to the prevalence of the pandemic to disastrous 2018 policy assertions in thwarting case management work, the spokesperson told the news outlets.
