What are the major Muslim ethnic groups entering the US right now through the RAP?

I was doing research at Wrapsnet (Refugee Processing Center) recently for another purpose and did a search on the major Muslim ethnic groups entering the US from Oct. 1, 2016 to Nov. 15, 2016 (approximately the first 6 weeks of FY2017).

The numbers below are only for Muslims in the top ten sending countries (all Muslim sects) that entered in that time frame (about 6 weeks) and only those who entered the US through the Refugee Admissions Program (RAP):

Somalia: 1,894

Syria: 1,867

Iraq: 1,388

Afghanistan: 298

Burma: 289

Sudan: 147

DR Congo: 141

Ethiopia: 118

Eritrea: 58

Iran: 56

 

This is the highest number of Somalis we have brought in since we began taking Somalis 30 years ago.

At this rate (315 weekly) we could have over 16,000 placed in a large number of states by September 30th. Go here to see my summary of how many Somalis we resettled through the RAP since the early 1980’s.  The highest previous year (2004) was 12,814 during the Bush Administration.

President-elect Trump needs to know that the Obama Admin. is pouring refugees in to the US at an unheard of rate in the first weeks of the fiscal year. Congress must cut their funding now to help Trump in January. Appropriating the extra billion or so the Administration says they need through March could tie Trump’s hands!

It is also 1,000 more in the first six weeks this year than it was last year at this time! Holy cow!  See here.

I maintain that the Somalis and many other Muslim ethnic groups cannot be screened any better than Syrians, especially the Somalis and the Burmese!

By the way, most of the Iranians we bring in are Christians or other religious minorities, but clearly we are bringing in Muslim Iranians. Why?

These numbers indicate that the feds and their contractors are pouring refugees in at an unsustainable rate!

We have admitted 14,568 total refugees of all persuasions in those approximately first 6 weeks.  That is a rate of about 2,428 a week. And at this rate we would admit 126,256 by September 30th when Obama’s wish for the year was (only, LOL!) 110,000.  (During Obama’s 8 years he admitted an average of about 70,000 a year, here.)

Just as we predicted, they are front-loading refugee admissions in advance of Trump’s Inauguration in January.

It is imperative that Congress NOT give the Office of Refugee Resettlement (HHS) the over $1 BILLION extra in funding it wants right now. (See ‘Running out of money’)  The Obama Administration encouraged the ‘kids’ (with its policies) to come to the US and, if the budget must be re-prioritized for them, so be it. That means only one thing: cutting the resettled refugee numbers.

      It is hundreds. Until a week or so ago one could see the list at the State Dept. data base (Wrapsnet) but they took down the list and it isn’t up yet. There are also approximately 47 new sites which we have been gradually able to ID.
