Confirmed! TRUMP’s Department of State is going back to normal refugee admission numbers

Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily received word from a US State Department spokesperson that YES, as the HuffPo reported yesterday, the Administration is going to admit 900 refugees a week for the remainder of the fiscal year which ends September 30th.

As of yesterday, that would mean that 62,482 could be the expected total.  The average since 9/11 has been around 64,000.  (See all admission numbers since 9/11 here.)

So big deal! The Trump team would be admitting only a small number below the average of George Bush and Barack Obama years.  The Dems, the Open Borders Left, the contractors with fat salaries, the Chamber of Commerce and RINO big business lackeys are surely all jumping for joy.

Some have suggested that all we have is Donald Trump, so I need to tone it down.  You aren’t going to hear me making excuses for him.

He is either being rolled by the bureaucrats or he (or Tillerson) has been convinced that businesses need the cheap labor.  Either way, it doesn’t look good!

Fortunately, since no one pays me for my work and my writing, I don’t have to tone anything down!

Here is what Hohmann learned from a “State Department Spokesperson” yesterday:

The U.S. State Department is ramping up refugee admissions back to more normal levels after it had slowed to a trickle over the past month under President Donald Trump.

WND has confirmed through a State Department spokesperson that the administration is set to more than double the number of refugees arriving in U.S. cities from the current 400 per week to 900 per week.  [Frankly I was surprised that they were even bringing, or planned to bring 400 a week—ed]

On March 15 a federal judge, Derrick Watson in Hawaii, issued a nationwide injunction stopping the State Department from enforcing or implementing sections 2 and 6 of President Trump’s March 6 executive order. Section 6[b] lowers the cap on refugee arrivals to 50,000, down from the 110,000 level set by President Obama.

After the court’s ruling, which was upheld Wednesday by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, the cap reverts back to the Obama level of 110,000.

Consequently, the State Department continues to accept refugees and this includes scheduling travel for refugees who have been screened and are otherwise approved for travel.

“The Court Order issued on March 15 prohibits the enforcement or implementation of Section 6 of the EO,” the State Department spokesperson told WND. “Section 6 of the EO includes a cap on refugee admissions into the United States of 50,000 for FY 2017. In accordance with the Court Order, and consistent with both our operational capacity and our capacity under available funding, we have increased the current pace of refugee arrivals to approximately 900 individuals per week. ” [So this means they must have lots of your money still available (or is coming from Congress!) to spend on admitting refugees!—ed]

Do the math, this comes out to approximately 62,482!

….the 62,482 is not a historically low number. In fact, it’s just barely under the per-year average of 64,000 since 2002.

Continue reading here.

Do NOT believe the lie that they have to aim to bring in 110,000 refugees just because Obama set a ceiling for FY2107 for that number.  That was not a normal number. It was by far the highest ceiling Obama had ever proposed.

Bill Frelick of Human Rights Watch: There is no requirement that the US must admit a single refugee.

And, there is nothing MANDATORY about that number.  They are trying to fool us and the media!

I am repeating this section of a recent postThe contractors have been for decades trying to turn the President’s ceiling into a target to be achieved, now Trump is helping them do that!

…look at this chart (below) very carefully.   When I found it at Wrapsnet, the last year, 2016, was not complete.  (Know that we ultimately brought in just short of the 85,000 ceiling (a rare occurrence)).

The federal refugee resettlement contractors have long wanted the president’s ‘determination’ each year to be a GOAL (a target) not a CEILING! But, the law says it is a ceiling. Look at the column for CEILING and the column for the number actually admitted!

What do you see?  Rarely does the number admitted reach the CEILING.

In FY2006, they were 28,777 below the CEILING. Did anyone sue the President?

In FY2007, they were 21,718 below the CEILING. Did anyone sue the President?

In FY2008, they were 19,809 below the CEILING. Did anyone sue the President?

In FY2009, they were 5,346 below the CEILING. Did anyone sue the President?

In FY2010, they were 6,689 below the CEILING. Did anyone sue the President?

In FY2011, they were 23,576 below the CEILING. Did anyone sue President Obama because he didn’t reach the ceiling? No!

In FY2012, they were 17,762 below the CEILING. Did anyone sue President Obama for leaving thousands “stranded in war-torn countries”? No!


You need to let the President know what you think.  Click here for the White House comment page. After you tell Donald Trump how disappointed you are, then be sure to let your voice be heard in the offices of your Member of Congress and US Senators!

One last thing, even if the Justice Dept. has hopes of successfully appealing the rogue judge’s decisions on the USRAP ceiling, there is no reason that they must open overseas processing at this time and jerking a lot of people around all over the world!

  1. I just wrote to the White House now. This is what I said:

    Mr. President, please shut down all “refugee resettlement” in America, place a moratorium on all immigration, and deport all illegal aliens that have violated our federal immigration laws immediately. This should be a top priority for your administration. These issues are what most Americans care about. We are not happy with how our country has been overrun by the Third World, while we are forced to pay for it all. This is wrong, it’s evil, and it must be stopped. This is our country, and it’s not “racist” or wrong to say that.

    I’ll be praying for you Mr. President.

  2. OMG! What does Trump fear? He knows the State Department is full of Obamunists, Communists, and many other forms of Traitorous Scum.

    Hope this is not True or hope Trump later rescinds this action.

  3. I feel that the American people are being scammed to death! We win, we win, we win and then we continue to lose. Everything we thought we were going to gain is turning to crap, Paul Ryan seems to be two-faced, I’m wondering about Trumps sincerity, John McCain is a big friend with George Soros, has been for years, Jim Comey and brother have made millions with the Clintons since Arkansas, The incredible lies and duplicity of our enemies is mindful of enormous depravity. Billions of foreign dollars are committed to our downfall, there is no sure thing except Obama’s cold-blooded hatred of Christians, Caucasians and Capitalism. He is sworn to ruin us, and never look back. Never in history has an ex-president organized a vendetta against a president-elect before he was even sworn in, and even before he was elected.

    1. I dont believe it. Lets wait and see. Hes trying to stop immigration so why would he do this. I dont believe it.


  5. That is what we get for electing a novice to President – I supported Trump- but even his staff is inexperienced in the bureaucracy of DC. He is not getting good advice. He has tried but the left wing judges have tied his hands and his lawyers nor congress are helping him. I know everyone is frustrated but we have to get Congress to defund. They are such weaklings. Tillers is busy seeing the world and assuming the career bureaucrats at State are doing the job. Unfortunately he didn’t completely drain that swam and failed to give directions regarding the refugee issue. I heard that he still has not filled the BPR post there. So apparently Trump moved too fast and failed to get his team in place prior.


  6. this is sickening. I know the contractors, who write the relevant refugee legislation, are trying to make the optional ceiling into a mandatory must-reach floor.

  7. FOLKS: I am a conservative and not a Trumpster! I am sickened Trump wimped out on stopping the Muslim Brotherhood from their Islamization of America! What a letdown!
    The Muslim Brotherhood wrote a plan to infiltrate America and destroy us from within. Here is a quote from their plan dated May 22, 1991 and a link to it! From the Explanatory Memorandum— the Muslim Brotherhood in America in its own words:
    4- Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America:
    The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal.

  8. We, the people, are no more. What good is citizenship? I’d like to turn mine in. Where do we do that?


  9. Ann- if this was anyone but YOU reporting this, I would be able to dismiss it as part of the never ending war on Trump. But because you have 100% credibility, unlike 99% of the other bloggers I read, I have to accept the awful truth like my mom used to tell me- when something seems too good to be true it usually is.
    I simply cannot believe that Trump has folded so quickly and I am literally praying that there is another explanation for this huge flip flop.

    Is it possible there is some other explanation, something else happening that we don’t know about? Somehow I doubt it.

    I awaken every day and check the news from all over the world and it seems that every single article is bashing Trump in some way. It is a never ending barrage from all sides and that is just what we can see on our end. Maybe the pressure is just too much for him to bear. Maybe he is someone who needs to be liked, a people pleaser. I can’t imagine what is causing him to go back on his promises. Doesn’t he have any advisors who are trustworthy?

    The people who worked so hard and put up with so much to elect Trump are not stupid. If it turns out that we are going to get screwed yet again, DJT will be a one term president for sure. I am not ready to jump ship yet, but I have a very bad feeling today about this whole immigration issue.

    Thank you for your fortitude and dedication to the truth. You are a true Patriot.

    1. Thanks for your comment. I am hoping as well that there is an explanation, but Hohmann at WND was given the same information (by the Dept. of State) as we had from the Huffington Post the day before. I was a Trump supporter from the beginning and am hoping now that he doesn’t know what is going on in the State Dept. I think it was something like 99% of the federal employees there donated to Hillary. I am hoping that by placing the blame on him, that somehow it will come to his attention that he is being rolled by the bureaucrats and will put a stop to it.

      If he does, I will be the first to praise him! But, right now the buck stops with him!

    1. Really, so tell me how are they going to vet the Syrians that are coming in. And, the 120-day moratorium was supposed to be the pause that allowed them to evaluate the screening process. So, instead they are just moving ahead at normal numbers. Sorry, I’m done making excuses for Trump!
