Trump Administration likely to come in at half the number of refugees they had signaled could be admitted

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 2, 2018

In September of last year, the Trump Administration set the CEILING for refugee admissions at 45,000 for the fiscal year that began October 1, 2017.

As of the last day of August the number actually admitted so far is 19,899. 

Trump and Bush

Previously George Bush held the record for the lowest number of refugee admitted to the US. President Trump is set to break that record.

That would be an average monthly admissions rate of 1,809 for FY18. Assuming that rate continues (although August was below average at 1,685), total admissions for the year will come in at less than 22,000 for the entire fiscal year.

I looked around to see if I saw any anti-Trump screeches from the federal refugee contractors***,  but not so far. Maybe they are all at the beach.

Here (below) is a map from Wrapsnet showing where this year’s ‘New Americans’ were placed.

See how ‘welcoming’ your state has been this year!

Hint! Texas and Ohio top the list!
