I just have one question: how many is Nancy Pelosi accepting into her personal residence?
According to GlobalCitizen.org:
…the US is on pace to resettle roughly 21,000 refugees in 2018. According to State Department data, which measures in fiscal years (October to September), that would be the lowest since 1977.
And that is due almost entirely to President Donald J. Trump.
It’s a little thing he likes to call “Promises Made, Promises Kept” and boy is he doing it!
And by the way, 21,000 is still a lot!
Dropping the number of refugees accepted into the United States to it’s lowest number since 1977 if fulfilling a campaign promise in a big way.
It’s also riling up the Dems!
So much so that Senate Dems just sent President Trump a letter demanding that he raise the number of refugees by 5 times….to 110,000 a year!
Here's more on the story, from Breitbart:
In a letter signed by 21 Senators — including Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Kamala Harris (D-MA), Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Mazie Hirono (D-HI), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), and Cory Booker (D-NJ) — Trump is requested to import nearly four times as many foreign refugees to the United States next year instead of the less than 22,500 refugees that are expected to be admitted.
The Senators complain in the letter that last year, the U.S. brought in only about 22,500 refugees:
The global community currently faces one of the largest refugee crises the world has seen. More than 25 million around the world have fled their homes and countries due to war, famine, and persecution. These are some of the world’s most vulnerable individuals, and more than half of them are children. [Emphasis added]
Yet in Fiscal Year 2018, the U.S. resettle only 22,491 refugees, in stark contrast to the annual average of more than 80,000 refugees resettled per year since the enactment of the 1980 Refugee Act. [Emphasis added]
The Senators say that reducing inflows of refugees to the U.S. “threaten the position” of the U.S. around the world, though the lawmakers do not mention the national security risks to Americans associated with large foreign populations using refugee resettlement to enter the country.
“We urge the Trump administration to reconsider [reducing the inflow of refugees] and instead reaffirm the U.S.’s commitment to a robust refugee admissions program,” the Senators conclude.
As Breitbart News reported, 61 House Democrats signed a similar letter in which they demanded Trump import five times the number of foreign refugees being admitted to the country. The House Democrats request that 110,000 refugees be admitted to the U.S. every year, far more than the 22,5000 refugees that were admitted last year.
Do you agree with President Trump or the Dems?
