President Trump on Saturday signed off on a plan to cap the number of refugees taken in by the United States at 18,000 in fiscal year 2020.

The number represents the lowest amount of possible refugees accepted by America since the program’s creation in 1980.

Religious and humanitarian groups cried foul over the plan when it was first introduced by the State Department in September.

The Trump administration this year agreed to let in as many as 30,000 refugees. In the final year of the Obama administration, the refugee ceiling was 85,000.
