Obama Opened Refugee Floodgates. Donald Halts It With Big, Beautiful Dam

It’s no secret that Obama wanted to replicate the crisis going on in Europe. Countries welcomed in millions of unvetted refugees. It resulted in complete chaos in Europe. Native citizens are in constant danger. Migrants abuse the system, harassing citizens, law enforcement, and everyone else.Image result for obamaObama wanted this in America. Liberals wanted to undermine the stability of our country. Massive increases in refugees would have put a huge burden on our society. That would have forced the government to expand its power to maintain control.

Thank goodness Obama is gone. Under President Trump, things are different. The amount of refugees has gone down. By how much? A huge percentage.

From Daily Wire:

According to a new report from the Center of Immigration Studies, President Donald Trump cut refugees by a stunning 70% percent his first 11 months in office.

Analyzing State Department data, the study revealed that Mr. Trump, compared to the same time frame under his predecessor in 2016 (January-December), cut the entry of refugees from 93,668 to 28,875. President Trump also accepted more Christians than any other religion, a change from former President Obama.

Moreover, it’s important to note that the number of admitted refugees from nations considered a terrorist threat would have been substantially lower if it had not been for judicial blocks to the administration’s travel ban. For example, once the ban was implemented on December 8, only one refugee from such designated nations, a Somali, has been accepted into the countryImage result for obama sadAs noted by the center, Trump has set the ceiling for refugees in fiscal year 2018 at 45,000, “the lowest refugee ceiling since 1980.”

It’s important to note he increased acceptance of Christians. Under Obama, Muslims were given priority. Why? Because democrats think there are a minority around the world. They’re not. In fact, Christians in the Middle East are a religious minority. They are in constant danger of persecution. It’s only right for the United States to welcome them in. Obama did not.

Trump is lowering the amount of refugees allowed in per year. It may sound cruel to soft-brained liberals. But it’s important. President Trump is putting Americans first. There are people in this country in desperate need. Veterans are homeless. Working families struggle to put food on the table. Yet liberals neglect them to help refugees and illegal immigrants.

The time of neglecting Americans is over. Trump is making good on his word to help American citizens. Limiting refugees is an important step in fixing our economy, securing our national security, and reducing taxpayer burden.

Hopefully more improvements are to come.

Here’s the breakdown of refugees admitted under President Trump from January 20-December 20, 2017, via Center for Immigration Studies

he Trump administration earlier this month decided to end its participation in the United Nations “Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration” days before a meeting in Mexico City. The withdrawal was to be expected, but by pulling out prior to the multinational gathering, the administration missed an opportunity to make a case to world leaders for its approach to migration.Related imageThe “Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration”, also known as the Global Compact for Migration (GCM), was set in motion in September 2016 following the unanimous adoption by the 193 UN members states (including the United States) of a resolution entitled “New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants”. The UN describes it as “a landmark political declaration that is directed at improving the way in which the international community responds to large movements of refugees and migrants, as well as to protracted refugee situations.” It is meant to establish a “global framework” for a “global response” to a “global phenomenon”. Based on this agreement, “migration, like other areas on international relations, will be guided by a set of common principles and approaches.”

The official statement released by the U.S. Mission to the UN does not mention the “Global Compact on Refugees”, which is a related but distinct effort from the one on migration, leaving unanswered whether the U.S. is pulling its support from both compacts.

The goals of the GCM include to establish official mechanisms to monitor human rights violations and abuse of migrants, review policies that criminalize cross-border movements, encourage family reunification, eliminate child immigration detention, focus on inclusion of migrants in host societies, provide safe passage to work including legal avenues and appropriate protections for migrant workers.Related imageThe Trump administration’s announcement to withdraw from the GCM came two days before a preparatory meeting scheduled in Mexico last week. Talks in Mexico were organized to provide a “platform for different nations and stakeholders to jointly shape a vision” for the GCM. Formal intergovernmental negotiations under the auspices of the UN were to follow in February 2018; after which consultations with member states and other relevant stakeholders were set to begin. Lastly, the presentation and adoption of the GCM is expected to take place during the 73rd UN General Assembly in September 2018.

The decision to work towards the adoption of a Global Compact on Refugees in 2018 was also reached following the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants. According to the UN, “the two processes [the compact on migration and the one on refugees are separate, distinct and independent.”
