10,000th Syrian Refugee Will Arrive in the U.S. Today

The 10,000th Syrian refugee will arrive in the U.S. on Monday — meeting a humanitarian goal the Obama administration set last year.

"On behalf of the President and his Administration, I extend the warmest of welcomes to each and every one of our Syrian arrivals, as well as the many other refugees resettled this year from all over the world," National Security Advisor Susan Rice said in a statement.
