The Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee has accused the Trump administration of ignoring a law that requires the Executive Branch to consult with Congress on the new refugee cap.

Officials announced last week that they planned to let in no more than 18,000 refugees during the fiscal year that just started, a 40% drop from last year.
