U.S. President Donald Trump's four-month worldwide ban on refugees ended Tuesday, officials said, as his administration prepared to unveil tougher new screening procedures.Last month, Trump capped refugee admissions at 45,000 for the fiscal year that started Oct. 1, a cut of more than half from the 110,000 limit put in place the year earlier by President Barack Obama.The refugee restrictions were in addition to Trump's broader "travel ban" on people from several countries. Instead, Trump has advocated keeping refugees closer to their homes.Citizens of the 11 countries, plus Palestine, comprised 44 percent of the nearly 54,000 refugees admitted into the United States in the 2017 fiscal year, according to State Department data.
