Despicable USA Today says refugee numbers plummet under Trump, but were silent when Obama monthly numbers were low

It is so maddening to see how the Leftwing Open borders media spins the news!

Here USA Today trumpets:

Refugee admissions plummet under Trump, USA TODAY analysis finds

Before you even read their analysis, look at this chart we posted two days ago showing monthly admissions for the last ten years.  We pointed out that at this point in the fiscal year (the end of April) we actually admitted more refugees than we did in that period for the last ten years. See also this morning’s numbers report.

Trump is on target (we are unhappy to say) to bring in just slightly less than the average number for the previous ten years, but you would never know that from reading the mainstream media!

See the chart that comes directly from the US State Dept. data below:

Notice that Obama had a month (FY2014) at 1,810 (did USA Today trumpet a plummet?)

Notice that Obama had two very low months in FY11, 2,034 and 2,190 (did USA Today trumpet a plummet?)

Notice that Obama had many months where the numbers were in the 3,000s. (did USA Today trumpet a plummet?)

And, don’t miss the fact that Obama, in many years did not reach his ‘ceiling’ and in fact never set one anywhere near 110,000 until he was on his way out of office!

Indeed, if Trump keeps his present pace he will exceed Obama’s years of FY11 and FY12.

Notice that George W. Bush’s numbers were in the 2,000s and 3,000s for many months.

 

 

Now here is how USA Today begins its story:

The number of refugees arriving in the United States has dropped sharply this year because of President Trump’s threats to bar their entry, even though his order for a total 120-day ban has been blocked twice by federal courts, a USA TODAY analysis of government figures shows.

The U.S. accepted 2,070 refugees in March, the lowest monthly total since 2013, according to State Department data. April ended with 3,316 refugees admitted, the second-lowest total since 2013.

The lying sacks only went back to 2013 where they could find a number that works for them, but how did they manage to overlook October 2014?

Read to the very end of the story and see what Mark Krikorian had to say.  And, USA Today finally does get to the crux of the matter—-the contractors are worried about their cash flow if Trump does follow-through and cap resettlement at 50,000.

The big test for Trump comes in September when he sets the level for FY18 and we will be watching.

BTW, there used to be “scoping meetings” in May (held by the US State Dept) to ask the public what the numbers and nationalities should look like for the upcoming fiscal year.  We will be watching to see if Tillerson’s DOS goes back to that practice.  The Obama Administration curtailed  those meetings in its final years because they really didn’t want to hear what the general public had to say!

    Between the refugee contractors and the Chamber of Commerce we learn that this is all about money. Sad.

    Well, lady. you would be even more shocked to hear some of the “language” that’s being used in relation to YOU, from some of us. 😦

    Lutheran Social Services is bent on ruining the last bastions of Western civilization that still exist in the USA; some Americans, including myself, have moved from the coasts into the conservative (Upper) Midwest only to find the same kind of self-destructive, “cultural enlightenment”, that is going on in more so-called, progressive, regions.

    I find what is going on here to be even more disdainful than what is going on in these more liberal areas because some of the citizens here have never even had a conversation with a Black-AMERICAN, or, Hispanic-AMERICAN. (Some have never even met an Italian-AMERICAN!)

    Upper Midwesterners has had no past real-life experience with “types” other than themselves and Native Americans for centuries; yet, the VOLAGS here want to shape the future into a multi-racial, Christian-Muslim, class-divided means of great profit off the backs of Third-Worlders. VOLAGers know very little of racial, or, ethnic identity amongst Americans, other than their own clans, but, take it upon themselves to transport, to our shores, foreigners whose religious and cultural styles are totally incongruent with ours. If this profiteering venture doesn’t reek of opportunism and the exploitation of both Third-World workers and of all Americans, I don’t know what does.
