Amy Holovnia is a Research Intern at the Migration Policy Institute. Her research focuses on the intersections of migration policy with human services, including policies related to refugee resettlement, unaccompanied children, and immigrant engagement with public agencies. She previously worked in human services for the International Institute of Minnesota, a local refugee resettlement organization.
Ms. Holovnia holds a master’s degree in migration studies from the Universidad de Almeria and will graduate with a master’s degree in human rights from the European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratization in September 2019.
Even as refugee admissions have dropped sharply during the Trump administration, some countries and religions have been significantly more affected than others, as this commentary explores. In fiscal year 2019, 79 percent of refugees were Christian and 16 percent Muslim—as compared to 44 percent Christian and 46 percent Muslim in fiscal year 2016, which was the last full year of the Obama administration.
