Quoted @FilippoGrandi

Congratulations, President @JoeBiden and Vice-President @KamalaHarris 🇺🇸.

We at UNHCR look forward to working with you on strengthening US global support to refugees, rebuilding the US resettlement programme and ensuring that the US asylum system is effective, just and humane.

Today strong advocates for refugees have taken an important oath.

They're committed to restoring the refugee resettlement program + ensuring human rights are at the heart of the US asylum system.

Congratulations to President @JoeBiden & VP @KamalaHarris!
