For first time in 3 decades US takes fewer refugees than the rest of the world combined

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 6, 2018

cws protest at WH 2

Refugee contracting agencies, Church World Service and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society protesting against Donald Trump earlier this year (with CAIR!) at the White House.


I’m just shaking my head… here we have the biased publication, The Hill, posting a news story (designed to whack the President) that basically says it is shameful that the US is not taking more refugees than the rest of the world COMBINED!

I bet many new readers here never even knew that we have been taking more refugees than the rest of the world COMBINED. To hear the Open Borders yappers, you were probably thinking that Germany, Turkey, Jordan, or Lebanon could claim that honor.

However, remember, that those migrants who flooded in to countries in Europe and others in the Middle East will not be staying permanently, and most will not become voting citizens of those countries.

Until Donald Trump, the US has admitted permanent refugees at a rate higher than the rest of the world COMBINED.

So isn’t time for us to take a break?

Jesus Rodriguez writing at The Hill (widely read on the Hill):

Pew study: Rest of the world takes in more refugees than US for first time

The United States is resettling fewer refugees than the rest of the world combined according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of data from the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees (UNHCR).

The study found that it is the first time the U.S has resettled fewer refugees than the combined total of all other nations since the 1980 U.S. Refugee Act, which allows the president to set caps on the number admitted.

Historically, the United States has led the world in refugee admissions, having taken in more than 3 million of the 4 million refugees resettled worldwide since the law’s adoption.

Pew graph

Pew cranks out this data as part to the campaign against the Prez.


But in 2017, the United States took in 33,000 refugees. That figure marks a sharp decline from the roughly 97,000 refugees resettled in 2016 and the lowest amount since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, when the government suspended refugee admissions for three months.

The rest of the world admitted about twice as many refugees last year, at 69,000.
The analysis also highlights a sharp decline in U.S. refugee resettlements from 2016.

Obama/Trudeau good, Trump bad.

The Obama administration notched a high that year, admitting 97,000 refugees.

This next line is such BS. Until Trump came along those other countries were just happy to hide and let the US carry the load! The State Department deep-staters love to say this, but there is no proof it guilt-tripped any country to step up!

Trudeau diversity heart

Canada’s Trudeau is a good boy….

The report notes that the U.S. often touted its refugee admissions to encourage other countries to also take in more people. Canada and Australia also saw a decrease in admissions in 2016. But Canada led the world by resettling 725 refugees per 1 million residents, a per-capita high.

More (bad Trump lingo) here.

Don’t miss the comments, readers of The Hill are having none of it!!!  You might want to add your voices!

Message to the lazy lunks on the Hill: The Refugee Act of 1980 needs to be completely scrapped. Start over!

If we are going to take in refugees, political agitators*** pretending to be humanitarian groups while feeding out of the federal trough have to go!

For new readers, here they are!

***The nine federal contractors you fund are below.

The number in parenthesis is the percentage of their income paid by you (the taxpayer) to place the refugees, line them up with jobs, and get them signed up for their services (aka welfare, education and healthcare)!  From most recent accounting, here.

There will be no reform of the USRAP until these nine federal contractors/political activist groups are eliminated from the system.

    Went to “The Hill” and praised the drop in admissions. Also gave a plug for refugeeresettlementwatch.

    First time in 3 decades US destroying its culture, economy, environment a little less empty-headedly than the rest of the world combined.


  5. I’m wondering if that icon of community involvement, Therese Patricia Okoumou, was among the permanent refugees admitted by Bush/Obama? Did she land on the Statue of Liberty, or did that come later? ROTFLMAO. Yes, stop ALL of it! Deport those who violate our laws. Naturalized refugees can be stripped of their U.S. citizenship and we need the wheels rolling on that effort!

      I’ll look around to see if there is any mention of her having refugee status. But, I might need a decoder ring!

    For the first time America is conducting her refugee program responsibly is what The Hill should say.


  7. Sounds like Pro America comments on the Hill article. Why doesn’t anyone ever say we need to help the countries they are coming from become more habitable? If the refugee migration continues, the countries they are coming from will be left with nothing but violent war lords and criminal despots, while our country is decimated by third worlders on welfare and lacking a desire to adopt our customs and values???????

    Don’t you know that borders create refugees?
