On January 27, 2017, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that place a temporary, NOT permanent, halt to all immigration and refugees from seven predominately Muslim nations. These nations had been previously identified by the Obama administration as those who produce the most terrorists.
Within days, one ultra-liberal judge took it upon himself to assume authority over the President of the United States and issued a stay, effectively blocking the executive order from being enacted. According to the Department of State, Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration, Office of Admissions -Refugee Processing Center, 4,579 people were allowed into the United States. Of those, 1,914 were from Near East/South Asia, 1,586 from Africa and 612 from East Asia. The majority of the nations in these regions are either Muslim controlled or have predominately Muslim populations.
On March 6, 2017, President Trump signed a second executive order placing a temporary halt to immigration and refugees from only 6 Terrorist identified nations. Once again, a liberal judge thought he was better than the President and blocked the order.
Notice that these liberal judges appear to place foreigners over the welfare and safety of American citizens. If anyone allowed into the US due to these liberal judges’ actions commit an act of terrorism or violence here in the US, then the responsibility for these actions need to be laid on the shoulders of the judges who allowed it to happen.
From March 1, 2017 through March 17, 2017, there were an additional 1,084 refugees/migrants allowed into the US. Of those, 462 were from Africa, 337 from Near East/South Asia and 193 from East Asia.
From March 17, 2017 through March 25, 2017, an additional 342 refugees were allowed into the country. Here is a breakdown of the top 5 nations from whence these latest refuges came from:
- 55 from Syria – 51 are Muslim
- 50 from Somalia – all 50 are Muslim
- 44 from Burma – 17 are Muslim
- 41 from Iraq – 32 are Muslim
- 32 from Ukraine – 0 Muslims
Can you guess which states are getting most of these refugees? Here are top five states receiving most of the Syrian refugees along with the political party of their governor:
- Michigan – Republican
- North Carolina – Democrat
- Tennessee – Republican
- Idaho – Republican
- Ohio – Republican
Here are the top five states getting most of the Somali refugees of which all are Muslim:
- Massachusetts – Republican
- Georgia – Democrat
- Maine – Republican
- Minnesota – Democrat
- New York – Democrat
Not sure if politics has anything to do with where these refugees are being placed, but 6 of the top 10 states getting them have Republican governors. North Carolina has a Democrat for a governor but everyone has been punishing them for their bathroom bill. It should be no surprise that Michigan and Tennessee are among the top states receiving Muslim refugees as the two largest enclaves of Muslims in the US are Dearborn, Michigan and Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
The questions you may want to be asking your state and federal politicians is how many more refugees are going to be allowed into the US before proper screening procedures are put into place and who many of those are being sent to your state and possible your community?
