Biden has discovered the solution to overhauling the ailing American refugee system.

Ilya Somin: Ukraine crisis created largest European refugee crisis since World War II. Biden administration established Uniting for Ukraine private refugee-sponsorship program. Private sponsorship allows Ukrainian migrants to enter U.S. far more easily than under conventional refugee admission system. Since April, at least 94,000 Ukrainians have entered the United States under the Uniting for Ukraine program. That compares to only 25,400 people from around the world during all of fiscal 2022. There is no real evidence that excruciatingly long wait times promote security or have other benefits.
