On Monday, The New York Times (paywall) discovered the White House rejected a US Department of Health and Human Services study that found refugees brought in about $63 billion in additional government revenue over the past 10 years. Other world leaders don’t expect any immediate change in Trump’s stance, as spotlighted today (Sept. 19) in UN secretary general António Guterres’ first General Assembly speech. Also in New York for the UNGA, Bangladesh prime minister Sheikh Hasina told Reuters she did not expect Trump to offer help as thousands of Rohingya Muslims flood across the border from Myanmar.

So as Trump mingles with other world leaders, refugees from Syria, Somalia, and Vietnam will be gathered in his childhood home to make a political statement.

The Trump administration is expected to announce how many refugees the US will resettle in 2018. Some anticipate the number will be capped at about 50,000 people—less than half the number admitted under former president Barack Obama in 2016.
