SEPTEMBER 28, 2017

President Donald Trump has already cut Obama’s 110,000 refugee target by more than half and has started to accept many Christian refugees, unlike Obama who brought in mostly Muslim refugees while Christians were being slaughtered in the Middle East simply for their faith.

President Trump has also cut the rate of Syrian refugees being admitted to the U.S. by more than 80 percent, and Christians have overtaken Muslims in the total number of refugees resettled. Syrians made up 15 percent of all refugees under Obama, that number dropped to just 8 percent under Trump.

Under Trump, the number of Muslims resettled in the U.S. dropped from half of refugees under Obama to slightly more than a third. Also, Christians resettled in the U.S. went up from 43 percent of refugees to 53 percent under Trump.

As of Tuesday, with four days left in the fiscal year, the U.S. government had admitted slightly over 53,000 refugees, which is less than half of Obama’s goal but slightly more refugees than Trump said he wanted to take in.

Courts stopped President Trump from setting the overall cap of refugees to 50,000, ruling that Trump couldn’t stop the arrival of refugees who had “close ties” to Americans. Those with “close ties” were exempted from his 50,000 cap, meaning the total number of refugees resettled in the U.S. will probably only be a few thousand over his proposed cap.
