UNHCR has almost 20,000 Syrians picked out for us, lists our resettlement commitment as "open-ended"

UNHCR logoThanks to reader Sheila for sending this UN High Commissioner for Refugees “pledge” list (dated the 7th of October) for Syrian refugees.  Note that the UNHCR has chosen 19,646 Syrians for us and has listed our commitment as “open-ended.”
So why isn’t the Obama Administration’s pledge of 10,000 listed here?  Why “open-ended?”
I urge you to also visit an earlier pledge list (from December 2014) by clicking here.
Who is running the show? As of December 2014 they already had over 9,000 selected for us!
