U.S. President Joe Biden said on Saturday he will raise this year's cap on refugees.That comes a day after drawing criticism from Democratic lawmakers for keeping the historically low cap set by predecessor Donald Trump of 15, 000. Biden signed an order Friday to extend that admissions cap through the end of September. That also effectively shelved a plan announced in February to increase the cap by more than four times. While the asylum system used by migrants is distinct from the refugee program, one U.S. official told Reuters that Biden's approach appears to have tied the two together. That source said that there were concerns over admitting more refugees at a time of rising numbers of migrants arriving at the border with Mexico, as well as not wanting to look 'too open' or 'soft'. Refugees are vetted while they are still overseas, unlike migrants who arrive at a U.S. border and then request asylum. Trump's cap was set partly to limit immigration, and Biden's order to KEEP it was a blow to refugee advocacy groups who wanted the Democratic president to move swiftly to reverse the policy.White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Friday the new refugee cap will be expected to cover the rest of this fiscal year, and would be announced by May 15.Though she added that the 62,500 figure is unlikely because of how low the current number already is.

Australia is in no rush to reopen its international borders, said the country's Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Sunday.The borders have been closed to all non-citizens and non-residents since March last year.Australian citizens and permanent residents cannot leave the country due to coronavirus restrictions unless they have an exemption.Returning Australians from overseas also have to quarantine in hotels for two weeks at their own expense."I can assure Australians that I will not be putting at risk the way we are living in this country, which is so different to the rest of the world today. "Last week Morrison said they were considering a staggered reopening of its international borders to allow residents who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to travel abroad first.Australia is one of the world's most successful countries to have handled the pandemic with coronavirus cases of around 29, 000 in total.But its nationwide vaccine rollout has been a hot political topic - a source of tension between the states and federal government.Australia had banked on the AstraZeneca vaccine for the majority of its shots, but last week raced to double its Pfizer vaccine order.That followed advice that people under the age of 50 should take Pfizer's vaccine, after European regulators found possible links between AstraZeneca's shot and reports of rare cases of blood clots.The government has since abandoned a goal to vaccinate everyone by the end of 2021.

The former MMA star and ONE and Bellator world welterweight champion was embarrassed on his professional boxing debut in Atlanta on Saturday night, failing to see out even a minute of the first round at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Askren was firmly dispatched to the canvas with a powerful right hand after having his defences easily breached by a left jab and while he wanted to continue after taking an initial eight count, the referee deemed it unsafe to do so. Paul’s detractors had said before the fight that Askren would be doing the boxing world a favour by ending his opponent’s undefeated streak amid criticism of such events, with Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach - who worked with ‘Funky’ in the build-up to Saturday’s fight - stating that it would be a “public service”.
