The report to Congress that accompanies the Presidential determination is always useful
Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 14, 2016
Yesterday the Dept. of State delivered Obama’s final ‘determination’ about refugee numbers for the upcoming fiscal year to Congress. For all of you sleuths out there in ‘pockets of resistance’ the document that goes along with the determination is always a very useful source of information.
For example on page 60 the State Department predicts that Obama’s 10,000 Syrian Muslims by September 30th, 2016 will actually be 13,000.
Also, be sure to go to near the end (p.69) to see how they are estimating a much lower cost than would be expected for 110,000 refugees. Are they trying to fool the Judiciary Committees in to thinking it is all less costly while the Appropriations Committees know the truth (do they talk to each other?).
