Yesterday was a fantastically inspirational day. I hope you all enjoyed it.
I’ve been a Trump supporter from the earliest days of his campaign, but I also know something about how Washington works and so I see my job, in addition to continuing to report what is happening in your states and around the world on refugees, as a nag to attempt to keep the Trump Administration honest and moving toward slowing immigration and thus assuring greater security for us all.
In Gettysburg in October, here, Donald Trump outlined a plan for his first 100 days which included making progress on building the wall and securing our borders.
Many of those illegal aliens (Africans!) coming across the border now are fake refugees who will be attempting to claim asylum, so the border is of concern to us in addition to the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program.
This is what Donald Trump promised would be happening immediately:
Additionally, on the first day, I will take the following five actions to restore security and the constitutional rule of law….
* FIFTH, suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur. All vetting of people coming into our country will be considered extreme vetting.
We assume “on the first day” means Monday, January 23rd!
Our Trump Watch! will report daily on how many refugees are coming in through the Refugee Admissions Program (RAP) in addition to other news about immigration in general. (BTW, we admit thousands of immigrants through myriad LEGAL programs from “terror-prone” regions. I don’t want to leave you with the notion that it is only ‘refugees’ coming from Islamic hotspots.)
See our benchmark post yesterday.
So while we were enjoying the festivities in DC, the US State Department admitted 168 more refugees just yesterday.
We will be watching in particular refugee numbers from Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, and Syria. There are many others coming from other regions as well that must be stopped. I’m thinking of the Rohingya from Burma and Bangladesh, Ethiopians, Eritreans and some other ethnic groups as well, but it will be those 4 we report on regularly.
Yesterday, Afghans topped the list of the four we will watch: 55 Afghans arrived in your towns, 45 Iraqis, 30 Syrians and no Somalis on Inauguration day.
See my 100 days countdown clock in the right hand sidebar!
Donald Trump was elected primarily because of the issue of jobs and immigration, we sure hope he (with Congress attempting to railroad him!) does not get bogged down on Obamacare.
Obamacare can be fixed over the course of the year, but uncontrolled immigration, in addition to threatening our security and way of life, is robbing Americans of jobs and changing the demographic makeup of America daily!
