Donald Trump must continue to hammer this issue—the American people do not want to pay for, or worry about their security as the Obama Administration is nearly its goal of admitting 10,000 Syrian Muslims to the US by September 30th.
And, for those of you who think that will be it, it won’t be as Obama and Hillary are gearing up to make 2017 an even bigger year for bringing the third world to your town.
Before I give you this latest poll news, I need to make sure you all understand something that even I wasn’t fully wrapping my mind around. Although we write frequently about the 190 or so US resettlement offices (see list here), refugee placement is not restricted to the town where the contractor’s office is located, but in fact refugees are distributed in 100 mile radius circles around those offices and thus I will bet Syrians and other refugees (Somalis, Burmese Rohingya, Iraqis etc.) have been settled in thousands of American small towns over the years.
I just checked the US State Department data base (Refugee Processing Center) and see that 184 cities and towns (map: 38 states) have received Syrians in the last 11 months.
Here is the polling information from the World Tribune:
Americans are overwhelmingly against accepting a wave of Syrian refugees into the country, a new poll found.
Just 36 percent of U.S. voters support allowing the refugees to enter, according to a Chicago Council on Global Affairs poll released on Aug. 15.
The Obama administration is close to reaching its goal of allowing 10,000 Syrian refugees into the U.S. by the end of September.
Anne Richard, assistant secretary of state for the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration, said earlier this month that 8,000 Syrians have already been re-settled.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has pledged to increase the number of Syrian refugees coming to the U.S.
Hillary Clinton: U.S. should take 65,000 Syrian refugees
The media has been mum about it, but a wise Trump campaign should find Hillary’s declaration last fall on Face the Nation and play it over and over again!
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Sunday that the United States should accept 65,000 refugees from Syria to help alleviate the humanitarian crisis created by the war there.
Here is my post on what she said. She was following the lead of the United Nations and the Senate Jihad Caucus (pushed by the resettlement contractors!) which called for 65,000 before Obama leaves office. See my June 2015 explanation (below) about where Hillary got the number 65,000! By the way, look for Obama’s even larger number at the UN pow wow in September.
My message is more urgent today than it was in June 2015!
