Numbers of refugees arriving this month are through the roof!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 20, 2017

In the last five days, the Obama Administration has admitted the astronomical number of 2,432 refugees.

Today is the big day! And, it feels like a huge holiday.  I wasn’t going to post anything since you will be glued to the tube, or maybe even in Washington, but I figured what the heck, I have news to report.

Ha! Ha! It was a rush job, but we got as many in as we could since Election day!

On January 16th I told you that the daily average of arriving refugees had dropped from earlier in the fiscal year (the 2017 fiscal year began on October 1, 2016), but I checked Wrapsnet this morning and see I must revise that assessment!

As of today, Inauguration Day, we have admitted 29,895 refugees, that is a rate way above any numbers we have seen at least since the years preceding 9/11, see here.

As of January 15th, the number was 27,463.  That means in the last 5 days Obama admitted 2,432!

Trump Watch begins tomorrow!

Unless the data base disappears, I plan to begin reporting daily (starting tomorrow) overall numbers and numbers for specific nationalities in my Trump Watch series.

So here are some benchmarks for today for FY17:

Overall admissions: 29,895 (267 per day average)

Afghans: 748

Syrians: 4,588

Somalis: 3,806

Iraqis: 4,560

Here is where the Syrians (98% Muslim) have been placed between October 1, 2016 and January 20, 2017:

If you can’t read Florida, it is 276. Alaska and Hawaii got zero Syrians so far.

I just had a look at our category, ‘Where to find information’ and there is a lot of good stuff posted there.
