He doesn’t do this often, but Joe Biden has finally fulfilled one of his campaign promises.
The cognitively deficient president is importing refugees from the world’s hotbeds of terrorist activity. National security and the safety of Americans means nothing to Joe; he just needs to remain in the good graces of the radical Left.
According to recent reports, the Biden administration resettled more than 3,000 refugees from major ‘sh**hole’ countries with the highest level of terrorist activity, many of which had been on Former President Donald Trump’s travel ban.
Slowly-but-surely, Joe Biden has raised the refugee cap and destroyed any of Trump’s policies that limited immigration. In May, he announced he would raise the refugee resettlement cap to 62,500 refugees for Fiscal Year 2021 — more than four times the cap that President Trump imposed for the year at about 15,000 refugees.
The Fiscal Year started on October 1, 2020, and ran through September 30.
However, what Biden fails to realize is that the resettlement cap is a goal numerical value. A president is not required to import that number of refugees.
In January, Biden signed an executive order that ended Trump’s constitutional travel ban which had prevented almost all immigration to the U.S. from particular countries with a history of exporting terrorism.
As a result, more than 3,000 refugees from countries listed on Trump’s travel ban were resettled across the U.S., including:
- 175 refugees from Iran
- 1,246 refugees from Syria
- 7 refugees from Yemen
- 174 refugees from Somalia
- 3 refugees from Venezuela
- 772 refugees from Myanmar
- 184 refugees from Eritrea
- 513 refugees from Sudan
Thanks to Trump’s reduction in the refugee resettlement program, a little more than 11,400 refugees in total were resettled in 2021 — a huge cut to Obama era levels and far below Biden’s cap of 62,500.
Biden’s totals, however, are larger than the populations of most small American cities. I’m sure he doesn’t see one problem with importing entire populations of people who have no connection to American culture whatsoever. The Biden administration targeted mostly battleground states when choosing where to import refugees:
- 422 refugees to Arizona
- 267 refugees to Colorado
- 216 refugees to Florida
- 385 refugees to Georgia
- 236 refugees to Iowa
- 533 refugees to Michigan
- 268 refugees to Minnesota
- 510 refugees to North Carolina
- 454 refugees to Ohio
- 395 refugees to Pennsylvania
- 914 refugees to Texas
- 273 refugees to Virginia
- 366 refugees to Wisconsin
A bulk of refugees, nearly 3,000, were resettled in California, Kentucky, New York, and Washington.
Biden is planning to bring more than 10 times as many refugees to the U.S. in fiscal year 2022 — which began on October 1st.
And to top it off, Biden rescinded an order that allowed states and localities to decide whether they wanted refugee resettlement in their communities. Signed by Trump, the order gave Americans veto power over the refugee program that they’ve been shut out of for decades.
Over the last 20 years, nearly one million refugees have been resettled in the country – but that number is highly questionable. This is a number more than double that of residents living in Miami, Florida!
Refugee resettlement costs American taxpayers nearly $9 billion every five years, according to research, and each refugee costs taxpayers about $133,000 over the course of their lifetime. Within five years, an estimated 16% of all refugees admitted will need housing assistance paid for by taxpayers.
