Florida closed 12 refugee resettlement offices during the past year after President Donald Trump decided to cap annual admissions at 45,000, the lowest in nearly 40 years, according to Ana Ceballos at the Naple Daily News.
Aside from turning away up to 65,000 refugees (under President Barack Obama, the cap was higher, at 110,000), the Trump administration's decision could greatly increase the work load for the overworked Department of Children and Families.
According to the story by Ceballos, those facilities that were closed now refer cases to DCF. That means the agency's caseload, while operating at a normal level now, will "explode" if any more resettlement offices are closed, Yuri Kaplun, a coordinator with Catholic Charities, told Ceballos.
