Just a quick update on where we are with Obama’s promised 10,000 Syrians to be admitted to the US in FY 2016. They are off to a slow start diversifying your towns and expanding the Democrat voter base, that is for sure.
I’m thinking there are two factors involved: First, they can’t get them through security screening at anywhere near the numbers they need to make that 10,000 goal (and remember the resettlement contractors are still yammering for 100,000 this year).
And, two, maybe they are running into the same problem that Canada is having—they can’t find enough who want to move permanently to N. America. Why? Because they really want to go home!
The slow pace has nothing to do with grandstanding by the governors which we will tell you about shortly.
According to the US State Department data base we have admitted 674 Syrians in the first three months of the fiscal year (Oct. 1, 2015 to Dec. 31, 2015). At that rate the feds will get 2,696 here by Sept. 30th, 2016 (obviously far short of 10,000).
99% of the 674 are Muslims (660 are Sunni Muslims).
Here are the top five states “welcoming” Syrians:
And, not far behind is KY with 50.
97% of the USCCB migration fund comes from your wallets! So, of course they want 100,000 Syrians this year!
