The nine federally funded refugee contractors*** never miss a media opportunity.
Last night I reported that several of them will be protesting against the President at the White House today (first anniversary of first ban) and others, like the International Rescue Committee are moaning to the media with press statements like this one:
IRC: Trump Administration on Track to Miss Own Target for Refugee Admissions
First, let’s set the record straight!
When the President sets a CEILING for the coming year, it is just that—a CEILING, or CAP—it is not a TARGET that must be reached.
Although the contractors, for the many years I have followed the program, want it to be a TARGET and so they continue to speak as if it is (as in this headline).
Here is some of what CEO and British national David Miliband wants the media to know:
What a surprise! Obama admitted many more Muslims than Trump!
International Rescue Committee (IRC) resettlement assessment shows disturbing data for vulnerable populations fleeing conflict and persecution
Based on current trends, the IRC projects 21,292 refugees will be resettled in the United States in Fiscal Year 2018, far below the Trump administration’s 45,000 refugee cap.
By this time in FY 2017, Syrians fleeing the war comprised 15 percent of arrivals in the U.S; in FY 2018, they comprise 0.5 percent.
13 percent of refugee arrivals in FY 2018 identify as Muslim, compared to 48 percent in FY 2017.
New York, NY, January 25, 2018 — On the eve of the anniversary of the Trump administration’s travel ban, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) today released projected figures for refugee resettlement in the United States. The IRC’s analysis shows the nation’s resettlement program on track to resettle only 21,292 refugees in Fiscal Year 2018, well below the administration’s 45,000 cap, and far below the historic annual average of 95,000.
The analysis is based on data covering the period Oct. 1, 2017, through Jan. 23, 2018.
Said David Miliband, IRC president and CEO –
“The shocking figures we are releasing today show that the U.S. is on track to cut by three quarters the number of refugees allowed into the country for resettlement.
This is a dramatic shift from 30 years of bipartisan practice, and represents an unprecedented assault on U.S. global leadership in this area.
[It still has bipartisan support from members of Congress/Senators who want cheap labor for their big business constituents.—ed]
“It is no exaggeration that the future of America as a home for refugees is now on the line. Congress needs to hold the administration to account for missing its own target, announced just four months ago. [It is NOT a target.—ed]
“The administration’s determination to squeeze the life out of the refugee resettlement program will harm the lives, and life chances, of some of the most vulnerable people on the planet, and it sets a terrible moral example to the rest of the world.”
Shocking Decline in Muslim Arrivals
791 refugees identifying as Muslim comprise only 13 percent of all refugees admitted to the U.S. so far in FY 2018.
By comparison, 14,496 people identifying as Muslim, or 48 percent of all refugees, were admitted to the U.S in FY 2017 in the same period. [Obama’s last months in office.—ed]
13 percent represents a figure well below the historic average; Pew Research analysis found that in the 15-year period from 2002 to 2017, Muslims made up about 33 percent of all refugees admitted to the U.S.
Yikes! I had no idea that the number was so high—33% of all refugees since 9/11 have been Muslims. Wow!

***LOL! I get to post the contractors twice today. My goal is to be sure new readers (and long time readers) know each day who is responsible for resettling refugees in your towns while acting as political agitators at the same time. These are the nine federal contractors that monopolize all US resettlement. Number in parenthesis is the percentage of federal dollars (your money) going to their budgets in the last complete analysis I did.
