The Obama administration has announced plans to steadily increase the number of refugees accepted in the United States for the next two years. The U.S. will accept 85,000 people in 2016 and 100,000 in 2017. Currently 70,000 refugees from around the world are allowed to come to the United States. People fleeing Syria will account for much of the increase in refugees, though not all. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File)
