U.S. Department
of State Through the U.S. Resettlement Program, the United States admitted 52,875 refugees representing more than 40 nationalities during fiscal year 2004. This represents more than an 85% increase over the number of refugees admitted in fiscal year 2003.

The success of this year’s program is a result of extraordinary efforts and coordination among federal agencies, international and non-governmental organizations, and overseas partners in successfully implementing and streamlining enhanced security requirements following September 11, 2001.

The United States remains committed to a vigorous refugee admissions program and will continue to welcome refugees for whom resettlement is the most appropriate durable solution. Since 1975, we have admitted over 2.5 million refugees for resettlement in the United States. We lead the world in offering resettlement to those in need, and we encourage other countries to participate actively in this humanitarian effort.
