Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart has an interesting analysis of the numbers of refugees being seeded across America at an accelerated rate right now and reports that on a per capita basis, red states (states Trump won) are at the top of the list in terms of numbers of resettled refugees.
What will Trump and Tillerson (Secretary of State designee) do? Being generous, I’m giving them until February 16th to turn off the spigot.
In 2013 I first suggested that the US Refugee Admissions Program is part of a plan to TURN RED STATES BLUE! (See my post about Tennessee, here.)
Bill Clinton was one of the engineers, GW Bush seemed oblivious, but Obama and his people have been open about changing the demographic makeup of the US. He was changing America by changing the people.
So it is no surprise to see Leahy’s analysis with Nebraska headlining his piece:
President Barack Obama’s deputies have dropped 502 additional refugees into Nebraska during the first three months of FY 2017, according to the Department of State.
The refugee resettlement rate for FY 2017 to date is significantly higher in Nebraska than it has been during any other year in the more three decades the state has participated in the federal refugee resettlement program.
Nebraska, a red state, voted for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election by a 60 percent to 34 percent margin.
Four more red states round out the top five recipients of resettled refugees on a per capita basis during the first three months of FY 2017.
In North Dakota, where Donald Trump won by a 64 percent to 28 percent margin, the federal government resettled 21.6 refugees per 100,000 residents.
In Kentucky, where Donald Trump won by a 62 percent to 32 percent margin, the federal government resettled 19.7 refugees per 100,000 residents.
In Arizona, where Donald Trump won by a 49 percent to 45 percent margin, the federal government resettled 19.5 refugees per 100,000 residents.
In Idaho, where Donald Trump won by a 59 percent to 28 percent margin, the federal government resettled 19.0 refugees per 100,000 residents.
But…..the big question is what will Trump do?
President-elect Donald Trump promised on the campaign trail that he will pause the resettlement of refugees from Syria and other countries that are hostile to the United States, so the current inflow will likely drop after his inauguration as the 45th president on Jan. 20.
