Uniting for Ukraine program allowing 100,000 Ukrainian refugees into the U.S.

The U.S. will take in up to 100,000 refugees through the new program called “Uniting for Ukraine.” Few details have been released, but it’s only open to those fleeing the war in Ukraine, not refugees from elsewhere. Refugees must first undergo background checks and Covid requirements. Ukrainian refugees must have U.S sponsors to allow them to apply for the program.
