Numbers update: end of first 5 months of fiscal year, highest number of refugees admitted in over 10 years

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 1, 2017

Yesterday, February 28th, was the end of the first 5 months of fiscal year 2017.

I checked the refugee admission numbers this morning (at Wrapsnet) and see that we admitted 37,026 refugees from all over the world since October 1, 2016.

How low will they go for Fiscal Year 2018? In 6 months that determination will be made.

Two days ago we reported that 36,822 had arrived.

By two days from now (March 3), the flow should almost come to an end for now, although remember that President Trump has said 50,000 will be admitted by September 30th—a number that is too high in my opinion.

It is obviously too late, but I had argued for 35,000.

I knew that for the time I’ve been writing this blog (since 2007), that 37,026 was much more than we had ever admitted in the first 5 months of a fiscal year, so I was able to go to this chart and confirm it.

If you live in one of over 100 resettlement sites in the US, and felt that you were being swamped recently, you probably were!

37,026 is 7,834 more than the highest year below, and a whopping 24,782 more than the lowest year!

Here are the admission numbers for the first 5 months of the fiscal year going back to 2006:

2006: 16,287

2007:  12,244

2008:  14,224

2009:  22,809

2010:  29,192

2011:  25,680

2012:  18,581

2013:  28,078

2014:  26,925

2015:  26,717

2016:  22,827

Next big test for the Trump Administration!

In September, President Trump will make his ‘determination’ for the number (and regions of the world from which they will come) of refugees to be seeded in to your towns and cities in FY2018.

This post is filed in our Trump Watch! category as well as ‘refugee statistics’ and ‘where to find information.’

  1. Ann, The only Middle East Refugees allowed to immigrate should be 50,000 persecuted Christians. It’s their turn to be the majority and a few Muslims. Have M.E. Christians vet the immigrants to ferret out the lying Muslims saying they are “Christian”.
