Despite the courts, the number of refugees, and the terrorists among them, admitted to the United States was cut by nearly half in the first three months of the Trump administration.
Government statistics show that more than 25,000 refugees were permitted to enter and reside in the United States at the end of the Obama administration. In the initial months under President Trump, the number fell to 13,000.
The statistics were released by the Department of Homeland Security, based on information supplied by the State Department.
Countries of origin were largely unchanged. In both periods, two-thirds of the arrivals came from five countries: the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Syria, Iraq, Somalia and Myanmar.
Refugees from two of those countries — Syria and Somalia — would have been banned under Trump’s executive order against entries from certain Muslim-majority nations, but federal courts have blocked the order.
So thanks to the courts, the countries that export terrorists who want to kill American and blow up our stuff, are still able to get killers into our country…albeit at a slower rate.
