Some countries, such as Germany, have agreed to accept a sizable number of refugees. The United States, however, has been slow to open its doors to the refugees. Since October 1, 2014, only 1,682 Syrian refugees have been admitted.
President Obama has pledged that the U.S. will accept 10,000 Syrians but private and religious charities say they are prepared to resettle many more, up to 100,000. See this New York Times article and The World Bank essay for an overview.
The federal government handles the resettling of refugees into the U.S. through a network of nine major private aid agencies with 180 affiliates located in communities across the nation, including the Refugee and Resettlement Office of Catholic Charities of Central and Northern Missouri. Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is responding to the refugee crisis in countries closer to Syria, including Greece, Albania, Macedonia and Serbia. For more read the CRS report.
