President Obama, in his final days in office, has pushed his leftist agenda into overdrive, and one of the areas he has focused on is allowing waves of refugees into the United States — as we watch Europe grapple with the the aftermath of such a foolish decision.
Through the first 11 weeks of fiscal year 2017, the United States welcomed 23,428 individuals as “refugees,” according to the Refugee Processing Center. At this rate, the U.S. will resettle roughly 110,580 this fiscal year, which would exceed President Obama’s target of 110,000.
Contrast that with last year, when the U.S. welcomed only 13,786 “refugees” through the first 11 weeks of FY 2016. The country would end up welcoming 84,995 by fiscal year’s end.
Leo Hohmann, a veteran journalist and WND news editor, sees this as part of a “concerted effort” by the Obama administration to admit as many as possible before Donald Trump becomes president.
“Get them here before Trump takes office on Jan. 20, because you don’t know exactly what Trump will do with regard to this controversial program,” Hohmann said.
“The left is in panic mode because this program has run on autopilot for 35 years,” he continued, “and now for the first time we have a president who has expressed an interest in taking a hard, critical look at how it is run and the effects it’s had on our cities, states and country.”
The program to which Hohmann refers is the U.S. State Department’s Refugee Admissions Program, which he writes about extensively in his brand-new book “Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest Through Immigration and the Resettlement Jihad.”
As WND explained, the program has been on autopilot since 1980, but the president does not have to renew it and can set a limit on the number of refugees admitted annually, as well as place limits on certain nationalities as he sees fit.
There are approximately 80,000 refugees set for America after Trump takes office, and according to Daniel Horowitz in Conservative Review, the president-elect will have the authority to block them from entry should he choose to do so.
“To begin with, §212(f) of [the] Immigration and Nationality Act gives the president unilateral authority at will to shut down any form of immigration under any circumstance,” Horowitz wrote. “In particular, §207 delegated to the president full authority to set the number of refugees to be admitted in a given year. Thus, Trump can easily shut down refugee resettlement through executive action on day one of his administration.”
“Trump could decide to put in place a complete moratorium on all refugee resettlement from Muslim-majority nations like Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia and Iraq, or he could significantly slow up the influx from these countries using what he calls ‘extreme vetting,’” Hohmann said.
Trump could and he should do what is necessary to keep this country safe, and that means not following in the footsteps of Europe.
In addition to the danger waves of migrants have brought to Europe, Breitbart reported that “Fewer than three per cent of the 1.2 million migrants who came to Germany in the last two years have found employment, newly released government figures show.”
Trump needs to put a stop to this insanity.
