Nine months in to fiscal year, Trump could break record low number of refugees admitted to US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 1, 2018

George W. Bush held the previous record low refugee admission years 27,070 in 2002 and 28,117 in 2003—following the national shock of 9/11.

Trump and GW bush smirk

Unless Donald Trump puts refugee program in to high gear in coming months, he will set the record for the lowest resettlement year since the Refugee Act of 1980 was signed in to law by JIMMY CARTER.  GW Bush held previous record.

But, Donald Trump, if the present rate continues, could come in as low as 21,000-22,000 admissions before the fiscal year ends on September 30th.

Readers will recall that the President set the CEILING for this fiscal year at 45,000.

However, before you celebrate, remember that lowering the numbers for a few years is not enough, the US Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) must be reformed at its very basic level (requiring Congress!) or once President Trump is no longer in office the program will simply go in to overdrive as the Open Borders advocates and resettlement contractors attempt to make up for what they will see as lost time in changing America by changing the people.

As the fiscal year winds down this summer, watch for a renewed pressure campaign on the President to boost the numbers for FY19.  The President sends his FY19 determination to Congress in September, but you can be sure that behind the scenes much haggling is already taking place.

As of today we have admitted 16,229 refugees to the US since October 1, 2017 (first day of this fiscal year). During the month of June the number was 1,908 a little above the monthly FY18 average of 1,803.

Here is a map from Wrapsnet about where they were placed.

Top ‘welcoming’ states in descending order are: Texas (so much for withdrawing from the program!), Ohio, New York, California, Washington, Arizona, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and Minnesota.

Wyoming never had a program, but note that the big mouths (we want diversity) in liberal Hawaii almost never get any refugees!

    I trust our President he will get us out of NAFTA .Now that Mexico elected a hard commie today. He will build was wall but we must elect republicans that are for his genda not what the media wants. Never Trumper Mark Sanford was beaten by a Trump candidate who after she gets better will win easy.

    The U.S. is sounding like the UK with* the crimes and the gag orders on reporting*. i recently watched that *Tommy Robinson* interview with *muslim historian and imam, Tawhidi*, who said that many books of the koran are trash and not genuine, and lots of the child-marriage stuff is based on false dogma used by imams ‘needing’ to insist that mohammed married a virgin (when in fact the history showed she was in her late twenties, and the age was changed to ‘6’ to keep believers in line with reverence for mohammed’s wife-pride)…

    The imam/historian didn’t think the culture adjusting needed for peace would happen anytime sooner than a few hundred years so that only leaves separating the extreme followers of sharia etc from those he sees as barely awakening to adjusting the koran.

    To accomplish the separation, his strategy which sounds quite possible is to *ban sharia courts* (some already operating in the UK) and to *ban the halal mea*t. The latter is a hideous nightmare of slaughtering the cows while they are awake and suffering the terror of having their throats slit, a not-fast and effective method as cowhide is not conducive to severing the nerves to the brain instantly as is done in western butchering practice with a stun-gun likely still, as that is consistent with *western ideas against animal cruelty*.

    Don’t you agree, that halal terror-killing should be banned and ended…? We can do this if we try it.

    TTYL, hoping our limited understanding of these video interviews will suffice… thanks for your excellent coverage of these issues…. MJHR…..
