Refugee numbers decline

Nine hundred and ten refugees were resettled in the United States during the month of August, the lowest monthly total since October 2002, when only 421 refugees were resettled.

During the first eleven months of FY 2017, a total of 51,389 refugees have been resettled, according to the State Department interactive website as of 8:00 a.m. eastern time on September 1. If the number of refugees resettled in September is similar to the number resettled in August, FY 2017 will close out with less than 53,000 refugees resettled in the country, the lowest total since FY 2007 in the George W. Bush administration when 48,282 refugees were resettled.

Only 24 percent of the refugees resettled in August, or 217 out of 910, were Muslim, significantly less than the 46 percent of refugees resettled in the first seven months of FY 2017 who were Muslim.

...
In September 2016, President Obama made a controversial presidential determination that the ceiling for refugee resettlement in the United States for FY 2017 would be 110,000–a 29 percent increase from the ceiling of 85,000 he had set for the prior fiscal year (when Congress appropriated funds to resettle refugees at that ceiling).
...
Hillary Clinton was on the record stating we should increase the number of Syrian refugees resettled in the country by 550 percent, from 10,000 proposed for FY 2016 to 65,000 annually. She also signaled that under a Hillary Clinton administration, the annual refugee ceiling would be increased above 110,000–up to as much as 200,000.

Thank God she was defeated.

Key Deadline

In less than thirty days, President Trump will announce his presidential determination of the refugee ceiling for FY 2018, and that number will clearly indicate the degree to which he intends to follow through on his campaign promises.

Again, no refugees but legitimate, provable regime enemies of a secular bent. And preferably single females.

If American foreign policy were actually solving problems in the countries where we interfere, rather than compounding problems there, then the annual net total of refugees from those regions should be negative. The recent Muslim "refugees" who say they had wanted to continue living in their Islamic countries are either (a) lying or (b) driven here by Hillary's Wars on behalf of her Saudi clients. Likewise the USA drug war is causing lethal violence south of the border, driving refugees here. At State, Hillary Clinton continued a long line of policies that increase violence elsewhere and drive refufees here. If American policy improves, we should expect to see refugees wanting to return home, especially if they prefer living in Islamic countries (in which case we should encourage them to return home ASAP).

Cui bono? Who benefits?

The oligarchy benefits from depressed wages and from the terrorism excuse to increase surveillance of the workers. This surveillance "for our own good" is actually looking for any threat to the oligarchy.

To question the wisdom of mass immigration of unskilled Mexicans and outright murderous Muslims inevitably results in public shaming as racist. And since the oligarchy has absolute control over the legacy media, there is no possibility to widely present the valid case for protecting American wages and American lives.

The election of Trump was proof of a chink in the armor of the oligarchy, so they have to fight the legitimacy of his points about labor and terror with everything they've got. But their droning accusations of racism and Russia have simply desensitized the public and perhaps made very large numbers suspicious of the media agenda.

So what will happen next? I'm not sure.

FY 2017 is actually on Obama, and the trend line with the heavy downward slope was put in place for four months before Trump took office.

Thanks, Obama

Anyone who shows up with raghead scalps, provable kills, should get a hearing. Refugees who really enjoyed killing jihadi and wasted them by the hundreds should get a green card and a happy meal. This would encourage killing the kinds of people who need to die, exactly the way Founding Fathers intended, and inspire the entrepreneurial spirt.

That's the ceiling number, not a mandatory quota that must be filled and can't be altered by an incoming President. Sorry, this is Trump's doing.

So how did Trump influence the numbers for the four months before he took office?

Do you deny the Obama trend line?
