The United States sheltered at least one hundred thousand Ukrainians since the Russian Federation’s war against Ukraine.
“President Biden committed to providing refuge to 100,000 displaced Ukrainians and others fleeing Russian aggression, and through a series of pathways, including Uniting for Ukraine, the United States has welcomed more than 100,000 Ukrainians since March.”
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas in a statement that DHS is “deeply proud to help provide refuge for Ukrainians fleeing Russia’s unprovoked invasion.”
“The ministry will continue to host Ukrainians in the coming weeks and months in accordance with President Biden’s commitments.”
Ukrainians who left for the United States after Russia launched an unprovoked invasion of Ukraine came to the United States through different routes and with different legal statuses. Most of them have a temporary permit to stay in the country.
“Nearly 47,000 Ukrainians entered the United States through temporary or immigrant visas. About 30,000 came through private sponsorship and more than 22,000 arrived through the US-Mexico border.”
