Trump Proposes Capping Refugee Admissions at Historic Low

President Trump has proposed reducing refugee admissions for 2021 by 3,000 which would move the total to 15,000, a historic low.

According to The Hill:

President Trump is proposing that only 15,000 refugees be allowed to resettle in the U.S. in the next fiscal year, marking an historic low of admission for some of the world’s most vulnerable peoples.

The State Department said in a statement issued late Wednesday night that the proposal was a “commitment to prioritize the safety and well-being of Americans, especially in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.”

The number of refugee admissions would be offset by commitments to providing overseas humanitarian assistance and efforts to end “conflicts that drive displacement in the first place,” the Department said.

Prioritized refugees will include those who are suffering or under fear of prosecution for their religion; Iraqis who are under threat for providing assistance to the U.S; refugees from the Central American triangle states of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras; and refugees who are likely under political repression in Hong Kong, Cuba and Venezuela.

However, the State Department said it will consider the cases of 290,000 asylum seekers.

The same lefties who have been blasting him for not “doing enough” about the Chink virus will now accuse him of xenophobia.

I think there should be no limit to the number we bring in so long as one democrat is deported for each refugee accepted. It would be a win for the country as the average IQ would skyrocket.

I think your comment should be changed to “there should be no limit to the number we bring in if one Radical is deported for each refugee accepted.”

Why let any “refugees” in? That’s like opening your door and inviting all these potential terrorists in. Why destroy our citizens and our country? There are how many muslim countries in the world? — let them relocate to one of them!

There are immigrants from countries all over the world, not just Muslim countries. All of them should be vetted, etc.

I guess “ refugees” (or people other countries don’t want), come to our country completely disease free? What about the Chinese virus? I have a new number 0.

With the loss of many businesses due to Covid-19, we need to get many people back to work. With fewer people vying for jobs as they open up, it will be easier to reduce our unemployed numbers. Once we attain a normalcy, the number of “legal” immigrants allowed yo come into the U.S. can be increased, as needed.
To me, this is the best way to keep American citizens FIRST.

They should also make it a rule that no more mo-slums be allowed to enter the U.S.

They need to start enforcing the current rules for refugees/immigrants, such as requiring them to learn English, assimilate to our way of life, etc. Anyone caught not obeying these rules, should be immediately deported, no 2nd chances, or 3rd. Just gone.
