A group of former government officials who helped write and implement the Refugee Act of 1980 discussed the reasons behind the creation of the legislation, and how these issues are still with us today. The Refugee Act of 1980 raised the annual ceiling for refugees allowed in the U.S., created a process for addressing refugee emergencies, and established the State Department’s Office of Refugee Resettlement. The Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum and the refugee assistance organization HIAS hosted this event. close
