In the wake of Manchester, Berlin, Paris, Nice, etc., this is unconscionable.
Did the election mean nothing? Is the left permanently in control? They staged a coup without firing a shot.
Stunning news: Trump State Department opens the flood gates, refugee admissions will explode in coming weeks
Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 27, 2017
Betraying the voters who elected Donald Trump, the Department of State slipped the news to the contractors on Thursday who then slipped the news to the New York Times just as you were packing up for the beach or getting ready for a family barbecue using the federal government’s favorite holiday weekend trick to bury the news.
Tillerson and Trump cave….
Forget everything I said in my post yesterday about Trump’s “average” admissions. If they do as they are now saying they will, Donald Trump will be responsible for one of six highest resettlement years since 9/11.***
U.S. Quietly Lifts Limit on Number of Refugees Allowed In
New York Times, May 27, 2017:
WASHINGTON — Despite repeated efforts by President Trump to curtail refugee resettlements, the State Department this week quietly lifted the department’s restriction on the number of refugees allowed to enter the United States.
The result could be a near doubling of refugees entering the country, from about 830 people a week in the first three weeks of this month to well over 1,500 people per week by next month, according to refugee advocates. Tens of thousands of refugees are waiting to come to the United States.
The State Department’s decision was conveyed in an email on Thursday to the private agencies in countries around the world that help refugees manage the nearly two-year application process needed to enter the United States.
In her email, Jennifer L. Smith, a department official, wrote that the refugee groups could begin bringing people to the United States “unconstrained by the weekly quotas that were in place.”
Refugee groups now predict that entries into the United States could increase so rapidly that the total number of refugees admitted by Sept. 30, the end of the fiscal year, could exceed 70,000.
Refugee advocates were delighted by the State Department’s decision.
“This is long overdue, but we’re very happy,” said Mark Hetfield, president and chief executive of HIAS, an immigrant aid society.
Continue reading here as the contractors say they are worried for next year. Oh, sure they are.
Bottomline is that it appears that the REPUBLICAN Congress (never forget they want to keep big business donors happy by providing a steady supply of cheap labor) appropriated gobs of money for refugee resettlement!
And, the Trump Administration (remember Trump campaigned with talk of a moratorium on refugee resettlement) appears to have no fight left in them on this issue (other issues too!).
***Here are the refugee admissions since 9/11. Bush had only 2 years in excess of 70,000 and Obama had 3 of his 8 years higher than 70,000.
2001: 87,259 (this year’s number would have been proposed by Clinton in the fall of 2000)
