Obama State Department is pouring refugees in at rate to admit 135,000 by September 2017
Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 23, 2016
Just as we predicted, Obama’s State Department is admitting refugees at a rate not seen in decades. Are they trying to flood the zone before a possible Trump Administration takes the reins of government in January? We think so!
I was having such fun researching numbers for my previous post, here, that I thought I would check the general flow for all refugees being admitted in the first three weeks of Fiscal Year 2017. Obama has proposed a refugee admission plan for 110,000 refugees to be placed in your towns by September 30, 2017. However, at the rate they are coming in, 135,000 could be here by that date. (Most of Obama’s plans for previous years averaged much less than 70,000 a year***.)
The 110,000 is a ceiling, so presumably to reach 135,000 they would have to “consult” with a weak Congress.
According to data maintained at the Refugee Processing Center, we admitted 7,780 refugees in the last 3 weeks. That is 2,593 a week (from all religions and countries). Multiply that by 52 weeks in the year and we get 134,853.
What I want to point out here are the Muslim refugees (3,517 in the first three weeks) and all of the different countries they come from. While we focus on the Syrians and the problems with vetting, make no mistake, they can’t properly vet any of these Muslims who we have picked up all over the world.
And, what good is vetting when the little kids we raised on our dime grow up to be jihadists as we have seen many times among Somali refugees primarily from Minnesota.
The most shocking number below is for Somalis in the first 3 weeks. We are bringing them in at a rate NEVER seen. At this rate (335 a week) we could bring in over 17,000 by the end of the fiscal year. Go here to see the top years we have ever had for Somali resettlement. The previous top year was in the Bush Administration (2004) when we admitted, 12,814.
The United Nations wants to clean out the Somali camps in Kenya and it sure looks like we said, “yes master!”
So here are the countries from which we received Muslim refugees in the last 3 weeks (October 1 to October 21, 2016):
Burma (180) These are the devout Rohingya! We have no data on them as they have left Burma! We pick them up in Malaysia and throughout that region of the world.
Central African Republic (13)
DR Congo (71) We were led to believe all of those from DR Congo were NOT Muslims
Ivory Coast (3)
Rep. of S. Sudan (2)
Sierra Leone (1)
Somalia (1,007) This is a resettlement rate never seen before.
See this map below from the Refugee Processing Center showing where the 1,007 Somalis were distributed in the last 3 weeks. It won’t take long for large numbers of them to move to Minnesota as secondary migrants (they want to be with their own kind of people!).
This map depicts Somali resettlement for the first 3 weeks of FY2017. Alaska didn’t fit on the map, but it got 4.
Don’t like what you see?
There is only one thing you can do to slow this flow (besides electing Donald Trump) which at this rate would bring around 135,000 refugees to America by next fall and that is to persuade your member of Congress and US Senators to DEFUND the program in the lame duck Budget debate coming in November.
See the first in a series of posts on the lame duck budget process by clicking here. This is not about Obama, your Congressional Representatives have the power to rein this in if they wanted to (and they don’t want you to know that they have that power!).
You have 16 days before election day to get a commitment from your Washington, DC representatives to DEFUND!
*** Check out this table which shows about the last ten years of refugee ceilings then actual resettlement numbers. You can see it averages less than 70,000 a year. So at 135,000 that is almost double anything we have admitted in more than a decade. (I was too lazy to look up our final tally for 2016, but it came in around the 85,000 mark).
