U.S. President Barack Obama’s goal of resettling 10,000 Syrian refugees in the U.S. this fiscal year will be achieved one month ahead of schedule Monday.

“On behalf of the president and his administration, I extend the warmest of welcomes to each and every one of our Syrian arrivals, as well as the many other refugees resettled this year from all over the world,” National Security Advisor Susan Rice said in a statement.
