How many new passports you need to get to the White House
Posted On July 6, 2021
The number of new passports is set to climb to nearly 50 million as the number of people who have their passports renewed annually continues to decline.
The White House is forecasting that the number will reach 51 million this year and 51 million in 2022, the last year for which statistics are available.
It’s expected that the annual passport renewal rate will continue to drop for several years, and the number has dropped from nearly 2 million in 2008 to less than 200,000 in 2016.
President Donald Trump, who is a dual citizen, will be celebrating his 100th day in office in January 2019.
Trump said during a speech at the National Constitution Center in Washington, D.C., on Friday that he’s getting ready to make history.
“I’m so happy, I’m so blessed,” he said.
“We’re going to go for broke.”
The White’s annual passport issuance has been declining since 2010, when the number reached nearly 2.6 million.
Trump has been pushing for the renewal of the passports for nearly a decade.
He has proposed a five-year extension of the passport program, but he was defeated by Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Trump’s proposed five-point plan includes increasing the number and size of the U.S. passports, revising the process for passport renewal, expanding the number that can be issued, making passport expiry less restrictive and increasing the speed at which new passports can be renewed.
The proposal also calls for issuing a new green card and revoking existing green cards for people born in the United States.
Trump proposed revoking green cards of foreign-born parents to make sure their children get a green card.
The current annual passport expiration dates are set to expire March 11.
The number of passports being issued by the U and Canada is set at about 2.7 million.
The annual renewal rates are at least slightly higher than the current rate of about 2 million, but they have declined since 2010.
The numbers are set in place to provide a “check and balance” for the Trump administration, according to a White House official.
The Office of Management and Budget and the U’s Office of Citizenship and Immigration Services determine the number, size and expiry dates for passports.
