Refugee Admissions Into U.S. Plunge 83% In First Two Months Of FY18

Tyler Durden's picture

As monthly refugee admissions into the United States lap the last few months of Obama's administration, the stark changes enacted by the Trump White House are more apparent than ever with admissions down a staggering 83% in the first two months of fiscal 2018 (October and November) compared to the first two months of fiscal 2017.

As CNS News points out, a total of only 3,108 refugees were admitted in October and November down from the 18,300 refugees who were admitted in October and November of last year.

The most striking change between the refugee admissions in the initial two-month period of this fiscal year and last fiscal year was the relative differences in size of the contingents from Syria, Somalia and Iraq.

In Oct.-Nov. 2016, 2,259 Syrians (97.6 percent Muslim, 1.7 percent Christian), 2,463 Somalis (99.9 percent Muslim) and 2,262 Iraqis (75 percent Muslim, 17.3 percent Christian, 7.4 percent Yazidi) were resettled.


In Oct.-Nov. 2017 the numbers had dropped to 33 Syrians (66.6 percent Muslim, 33.3 percent Christian), 126 Somalis (100 percent Muslim) and 76 Iraqis (84.2 percent Muslim, 10.5 percent Christian, 3.9 percent Yazidi).


Among the 3,108 refugees admitted since FY 2018 began, the five largest contingents came from Bhutan (805), the Democratic Republic of Congo (627), Burma (347), Ukraine (290) and Eritrea (281).


The religious breakdown of those 3,108 refugees was: 59.6 percent Christian, 15.4 percent Muslim, 9.6 percent Buddhist, 7.6 percent Hindu, 4.7 percent Kirat and 0.9 percent Jewish.


By contrast, the five countries represented most strongly among the 18,300 refugees resettled by the Obama administration in the U.S. during the first two months of FY 2017 were the DRC (4,236), Somalia (2,463), Iraq (2,262), Syria (2,259) and Burma (1,509).


The religious breakdown of those 18,300 refugees was: 48.1 percent Christian, 43.6 percent Muslim, 2.4 percent Buddhist, 1.7 percent Hindu, 0.9 percent Kirat and 0.3 percent Jewish.

Meanwhile, fourteen months after the Obama administration backed a push at the U.N. for global responsibility-sharing for refugees and migrants, the Trump Administration has pulled out of the initiative with U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley saying it “is simply not compatible with U.S. sovereignty.”

Now the administration is also withdrawing from a U.N. initiative called the Global Compact on Migration.


In a statement Sunday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the U.S. would continue to engage at the U.N. but in this case it “simply cannot in good faith support a process that could undermine the sovereign right of the United States to enforce our immigration laws and secure our borders.”


“The United States supports international cooperation on migration issues, but it is the primary responsibility of sovereign states to help ensure that migration is safe, orderly, and legal.”


Haley said Sunday the New York declaration “contains numerous provisions that are inconsistent with U.S. immigration and refugee policies and the Trump administration’s immigration principles.”


She said no country has done more that the U.S. in providing support for migrant and refugee populations across the globe, “and our generosity will continue.”


“But our decisions on immigration policies must always be made by Americans and Americans alone,” she said. “We will decide how best to control our borders and who will be allowed to enter our country.”

Of course, it's just a matter of time until Chuck Schumer and/or Nancy Pelosi tell us that Trump's efforts to not outsource decisions regarding American sovereignty to the U.N. is just more evidence of the inherent racism plaguing the current administration.

Waaa?! How could this have happened?! ;-)

Imagine if there were a wall?

And...when we yank our troops out of all the places in the world where they're not wanted (like euro-socialistburg) there will be plenty of manpower to guard it!

MAGA bitchez, how do you like us now? ;-)

When do we start sending them back?

Can we get them to go NEGATIVE for a few decades?


New_Meat's picture

I'm positive that they are negative enough at this time.

Deport Obama back to Kenya where he was born. 

nmewn's picture

Yeah, thats the funny thing about the Kenyan constitution and males born to Kenyan citizens, O'Barry never renounced.

In the infamous words of that great humanitarian & journalist...Charlie Rose:

"There's a lot we don't know about Barack Obama.";-)

shankster's picture

Fact: Kenyan government okayed it for Obama to run for President in Kenya.

Mazzy's picture

I was just talking to a Kenyan guy last Wednesday or Thursday and about three minutes into the conversation he mentioned to me was that his homeland was Obama's homeland.  Amazing.  The whole world knows, but half of America chooses blind ignorance.


FWIW Kenyans speak English very well and many of them seem reasonably educated. Compare that to Nigerians and I can't understand them one lick.  Might as well be speaking to someone from Alabama or Boston.

Why the fuck are we importing any Somalis? Why are we importing Muslims? Send them BACK!!!

Heck, a .50 cal every 100 yards and some UN friendly landmines and most of the work is done.

I guess putting up signs saying...

Ciudad de Santuario!!!

...would be unsporting and like shooting over a baited field.

But it would be efficient for the ner-do-wells ;-)

Not Americans, you HAVE to go back.

If Obama had been so accomplished in his first year we would have ssen his face on mount Rushmore by the end of the second.

Great start. Don't stop until it's a 100% plunge. Or just send them all to California.

krispkritter's picture

Already there. CA needs to do a premature ejaculation of all illegal aliens, extended family, and 'birth right' illegals. Want to see another Federal dime for your 'sancturary' policies?  Suck a dick Pelosi, Feinstein, etc.  The Steinle example was just one of many 100's or 1000's of born Americans that died due to the influx of illegals. DUI"s, shootings, etc., what does it take to end the carnage?  The death toll in Mexico over drugs and shit, that's worse than Chicongo?  MS-13 in the US? Burn them to the ground using US LEO, fuck their 'rights'. At this point, anyone South of the US border that arrives here should be detained, deported, and upon repeat offense(other than women and children), dropped in their country of origination from 3000 feet. Women and children get sent back and if they show up again, the originating country gets billed 10x the cost of removal and never sees a dime of US 'Aid'. Who in the US wants to pay taxes for this BULLSHIT! Glad the alcohol is kicking in...

It's all about the money....and cheap childcare and business-employees-near-to-slave-labor.

Oldwood's picture

Bullshit. There is no slave labor in America. The low income folks are leaving the job market for better opportunities in the entitlement venue, even the illegals. Go try to hire one and you will find your "slave wages" are quite high indeed. Anyone with any skills draws good wages.

Europe should do the same. No benefits, no free stuff, etc. NO Welfare. Only for the locals.

Get rid of EBT and you will have lettuce pickers lining up around the block.

If we ever do deport all the illegals, I have a pretty good idea about who we can get to pick our crops....

White men...who for some mysterious reason can't qualify for government handouts. "Negative" action against whites is effectively the same justification as affirmative action for blacks. Its not for achievement of equality but social and economic justice for perceived past wrongs, even IF those wrongs were perpetrated by relatively few many years ago.

It seems that so much of the malcontent int the world is justified by hundreds if not thousands of years old perceived or real injustices. It is apparent that justice cannot be attained, it can only be FED.

Antifa, 9/11, Vegas, does this sound familiar? Our govt. has declared war on us.

Deadly political games: Italian journalist blows lid off Maidan snipers mystery

Italian journalist Gian Micalessin’s interviews with three Georgian mercenaries who took part in the shooting massacre of protesters and police in Kiev in early 2014, and led to the overthrow of the Ukrainian government, have dismantled the new government’s account of the tragedy. Micalessin spoke to Sputnik about the implications of his findings.

Gian Micalessin’s investigation, which aired on Italy’s Canale 5 television channel this month, confirms long-held suspicions held by many that agent provocateurs, and not members of Ukraine’s Berkut tactical law enforcement unit, were responsible for the murders of dozens of anti-government protesters and police in mid-February 2014.

There, they and other foreign nationals, including several Lithuanians, were tasked with arranging provocations with police, at first using Molotov cocktails, makeshift shields and clubs.

Zalogy says he and the other mercs, including masked men under the orders of Ukrainian politician Sergey Pashinsky, were told to use their weapons to “sow some chaos” and fire indiscriminately into the streets.

Stop bringing in Somalians!  They are not at war with any other country, they have no refugees--just deadbeats and pirates.

Why not 100% .... or better yet, lets make it  >100% by deporting all of the Islamic Scum that we have allowed to come here and suck the welfare system dry....

That Trump. This proves he's insane, inchoherent, intransigent, insensitive and in collusion with Russians.

I have half a mind to go grab some pussy in celebration.

This is a direct result of Trump not starting any new wars while winding down all of Obama and Bush II's many wars.

Well done, Mister President. Well done.
