Did your state get Syrian Muslim refugees in October? Kentucky still number one!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 31, 2015

Update November 1:  The UNHCR has picked nearly 20,000 Syrians for us, says our commitment is “open-ended” here.

The Obama Administration says they will resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees in the US in FY 2016 which began October 1.  Here is a map showing where the first 187 Syrians have been placed (as of today).   Two weeks ago, it had been only 51 (see here), but Kentucky is still the number one destination (here with 26).

Map syrians

Of the 187 admitted to the US this month, 183 are Sunni Muslims.  There were 3 Catholics and 1 Christian.  That is 98% Muslim. Last year the percentage of Muslims in the Syrian flow to America was 97%.

Go here to the Refugee Processing Center to see where I am getting the information.

If Obama wants to get 10,000 in here in one year, they will surely have to step this up.  I expect the slow start involves the problem they are having doing the security screening.  He will have to get almost 900 a month in here to make his quota.

If you missed my report on the UNHCR talk in Washington on Thursday, here, then you missed his explanation about why the Christians weren’t coming in any great numbers—he says they are not persecuted by the Assad regime so they aren’t refugees in need of resettlement.  I guess ISIS doesn’t count as a persecutor!

Will Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul say anything about the colonization of Kentucky?  I won’t hold my breath!

[…] If you are a Senator Cruz fan, this is his chance to show leadership when the Senate takes up 2016 funding very soon.  (Of the Presidential candidates, you know for sure Marco Rubio won’t do it, but maybe Rand Paul will take a leadership role especially since Kentucky is a leading Syrian resettlement state).

      Not sure how you are seeing the colors. They aren’t my colors, note that states that have gotten zero so far are white, all others are light blue.

    Beware, residents of Park Ridge, Illinois! Refugee One may be poised to bring “Syrian” refugees into your community (if they have not already done so).
    St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Park Ridge, IL will be sponsoring a refugee informational meeting on November 14, 2015 sponsored by Refugee One, the major resettlement contractor in the Chicago.
    See http://www.stlukespr.org/welcome-refugees/
    If you live in Park Ridge (Hillary Clinton’s hometown) you might want to show up and ask some questions.
