Obama more than halfway to goal of 10,000 Syrian Muslims brought to US this year, Michigan tops the list

Obama announced last fall that in FY2016, the US would “welcome” 10,000 Syrian ‘refugees’ to states across America. As of June 30th (9 months into the fiscal year) 5,186 have been distributed so far.

Snyder and obama
In May of 2014 we reported that Michigan Governor Rick Snyder wanted to invite 50,000 refugees to the state. Guess he is on his way to getting them. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2015/05/18/lets-not-bring-50000-syrians-to-detroit-it-is-a-dumb-idea/

Lots of news outlets are reporting the numbers, here is just one story from Breitbart yesterday (confirming what we have previously reported that 99% of them are Muslims):


The United States’ federal government has imported a record number of Syrian refugees in June – more than 2,300 – of whom 99 percent are Sunni Muslim and just eight identify as Christian.

The record number admitted to the country last month brings the total number of Syrian refugees accepted during the fiscal year above the 5,000 mark and puts the government on a trajectory to surpass President Barack Obama’s stated goal of 10,000 refugees by the end of September, reports the Washington Times.


“This is social engineering, not humanitarian relief,” writes Robert Spencer at JihadWatch.com. “Syria was 10% Christian before the war. The Christians have been targeted and persecuted by several jihad groups. The refugees, then, should be at least 10% Christian and probably more than that.”

Using the US State Department’s own data base, here are the top ten states where Syrians are being placed (in parenthesis is the number for just these last nine months):

Michigan (570)

California (497)

Illinois (343)

Pennsylvania (340)

Texas (324)

Florida (301)

North Carolina (279)

New York (264)

Ohio (209)
