1,830 refugees arrived in the US in first month of FY19, welcomed by 43 states

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 1, 2018

In the first month of Fiscal Year 2019, Trump’s State Department admitted its initial group of refugees, mostly UN-selected, toward its proposed cap of 30,000 for resettlement  this year.

They are being quietly distributed to approximately 170 towns and cities.

If the DOS kept this same pace, 1,830 a month, we would come in just under 22,000 for the year that ends September 30, 2019.   In fiscal year 2018, we admitted 22,491 as the final number. (These numbers do not include the thousands granted asylum each month or the Special Immigrant visa entries who mostly come from Iraq and Afghanistan and get the same benefits as the regular DOS refugees.)

Here (below) is where they went (from Wrapsnet).

Washington state gets the honor of being the number one welcoming state for the month.

1,615, or 88%, came from 4 countries:  DR Congo (608), Eritrea (358), Ukraine (345), and Burma (304).

362 of the total 1,830 are Muslims of one sect or another with the largest number 126 from Burma.  Those would most likely be Rohingya Muslims.

This post is filed in two categories for your future reference:  Refugee statistics and Where to find information.

Arizona Iraqi refugee arrested in bomb-making plot, media avoids the ‘R’ word

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 1, 2018

Thanks to reader Julia for sending the story from the Daily Mail with the rather long headline:

REVEALED: Iraqi refugee who planned to carry out terror attacks with bombs he built in Las Vegas was caught in elaborate FBI sting teaching agents to make IEDs with skills he learned in Iraq

Check out the Daily Mail story with photos and a video.  The video mentions that the brother of the alleged wannabe bomber reported that they are Iraqi refugees.

But what interested me more than the actual news is that the US media is once again burying the information about Ahmad Suhad Ahmad being a REFUGEE we welcomed to America.

Ahmad reportedly wanted to bomb someone or something in Mexico.

I searched for a US story to write about and there are plenty, but most didn’t mention the refugee part of the story.  This one was the most interesting.

From The Federalist Papers:

Refugee Caught Making Bombs For Assassination, Media Covers Up Story

A refugee has been caught in the nick of time as he was making bombs to prepare for a terror attack, but the mainstream media wants to hide it from you.

Ahmad Suhad Ahmad, a refugee from Iraq, was caught in an undercover sting operation by the FBI making bombs in his Las Vegas hotel.

This is the reason you have to vet “refugees” as they attempt to flood into the United States.

Not every one of them is a freedom seeking migrant looking for a better life. Some of them want to take yours.

It is also the reason you have to vet stories from the mainstream media as it will do anything to push the idea that all refugees are good and there is no danger.

More here.

Fake News!

And, if I didn’t make myself completely clear in the post I wrote about the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, because the mainstream media fails to tell the general public the full truth about refugees and how the resettlement process works, and about many other issues, conspiracy theories grow and fester.

Unfortunately, it is constant deceptive reporting from major media’s Leftist world-view that produces irrational actions by people who are angered by the continual half-truths they see every day at the Washington Post, the New York Times and on CNN (to name a few of the main culprits.)

And, it is how President Trump’s railing against “fake news” resonates with those now getting most of their news from alternative media on their phones and computers.  They see the full story (both sides!) by reading widely on the internet and feel they have been lied to by the dominant media.

Update: Just as I am ready to post, I see some stories now reporting the alleged bomb-maker’s refugee roots.
