Wrapsnet update: Number of refugees arriving slowed since yesterday

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 28, 2017

rpcLogoSmall [Converted]See my post, here, about how I have been tracking refugee arrivals since the morning of Inauguration Day.

 

Here is a recap of what I posted each day:

January 20th: 29,895

January 21st: 30,063

January 22nd: 30,063

January 23rd: 30,063

January 24th: 30,063

January 25th: 30,885

January 26th: 31,521

January 27th: 32,094

This morning the number is 32,125. 

I’ll try to keep readers posted each day going forward.  The President, in yesterday’s executive order, reset Obama’s ceiling of 110,000 to 50,000 (go here to see my explanation about why that is still too high).

Here is a map from Wrapsnet (Refugee Processing Center) this morning. How many have already gone to your state this fiscal year?

If you can’t read Florida it is 1,047. Alaska is 32 and Hawaii is 3.

 

By the way, note that states that in recent months withdrew from the US Refugee Admissions Program have shown no reduction in the number of refugees they receive. Those states are Texas, Kansas, New Jersey and Maine. The federal government is simply turning the work of placing refugees in those states over to the (we believe) unlawful Wilson-Fish alternative which puts a non-profit refugee contractor in charge of the program in that state!

Governors in those states—all Republicans—should consider suing as Tennessee is doing, or at minimum screaming to the Trump Administration!

Wyoming has wisely never had a refugee program!

    REFUGEES NEED TO STOP FOR THE NEXT FIVE YEARS AT LEAST, AND NO MUSLIM ALLOWED TO ENTER THE COUNTRY, IF YOU QURAN OR ANY OTHER DOCTRINE SAYS TO MURDER OF ANOTHER FAITH, YOU SHALL NEVER BE PERMITTED TO ENTER. WE MUST ALSO BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR FALSE CONVERSIONS TO CHRISTIANITY AND JUDAISM. WE DO NOT NEED A BAN FOR 90 DAYS, WE NEED A BAN FOR FIVE YEARS. REMEMBER TRUMP HAS BUSINESS INVESTMENTS OVERSEAS AND HIS AIM IS TO PROTECT THAT TOO, HE IS NOT FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AS ONE MAY THINK, HE IS IN OFFICE TO FURTHER WHAT HE ALREADY HAS. HE IS A BILLIONAIRE’S CLUB BOY!!!

    Ann- here’s another great article from today’s Daily Mail. Apparently President Trump’s Exec Order took effect IMMEDIATELY. They are already turning away visa holders and refugees who are included in the ban. Note that Google is urging their employees whose status may be in doubt, to return to the US.

    However, after reading this article and a few others, I have one enormous fear, and that is, that no matter how wonderful this order seems to be, or even how great I think President Trump is, Big Government and The Bureaucracy ALWAYS manage to screw things up. There was a line in this article about a guy who was detained who has been working on behalf of the US in Iraq for many years. Sounds like a spy to me. For our side.

    What worries me is that some of the idiots on the ground who are screening these people will, as per usual, let in the terrorists and detain the innocent. Unless these directives filter all the way down to the TSA screeners who must be made to understand we are trying to stop TERRORISTS and others who would do us harm, NOT innocent people who are legit. If you’ve ever been through a NY airport screening, you would understand why I’m worried. Still, I am delighted that at least our push back has begun. Thanks again.

    Dear Ann- we have to be patient with our new President, even though I share your desire to eviscerate the entire Refugee Resettlement program and our current immigration laws. Nevertheless, Trump did not get to where he by being foolish or ill informed, at least that is what I tell myself every time I start to doubt him. And you know what? He always comes through for us, at least he has these past few days. He is keeping his campaign promises- how refreshing!

    Here is another article about yesterday’s Exec Order. I truly think someone in Washington is reading your blog.
