The U.S. is expected to accept its 10,000th Syrian refugee this week.

Alice Wells, the U.S. ambassador to Jordan, said the refugee resettlement program will hit the 10,000-person target it set for the 2016 fiscal year, according to the Associated Press. The fiscal year ends September 30.

"Refugees are the most thoroughly screened category of travelers to the United States, and Syrian refugees are subject to even greater scrutiny," she reportedly said.

GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump has railed against accepting Syrian refugees into the United States and has argued that the refugees pose a security threat. Clinton, however, wants the U.S. to accept several thousand more refugees than the Obama administration has permitted. The hot-button issue may become a talking point for both candidates again in the coming week.
