We learned two things here — one thing about Trump’s policies and the Other about Obama’s.
The numbers don’t lie.
Even if the media do.
The number of refugees admitted to the United States was cut by nearly half in the first three months of the Trump administration compared with the final three months of the Obama presidency, reflecting the new president’s skepticism toward immigration.
Government statistics released Friday showed that more than 25,000 refugees were permitted to enter and reside in the United States at the end of the Obama administration. In the initial months under President Trump, the number fell to 13,000.
The statistics were released by the Department of Homeland Security, based on information supplied by the State Department.
Countries of origin were largely unchanged. In both periods, two-thirds of the arrivals came from five countries: the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Syria, Iraq, Somalia and Myanmar.
Refugees from two of those countries — Syria and Somalia — would have been banned under Trump’s executive order against entries from certain Muslim-majority nations, but federal courts have blocked the order. Trump’s original order covered Iraqis as well, but he omitted Iraq from his revised order.
The data suggest that the Obama administration, as it was about to turn over power to Trump, significantly stepped up the number of refugees admitted. Arrivals in its final three months reflected an 86% year-over-year increase compared to the same period the previous year.
We learned that Obama didn’t care so much about bringing in immigrants during his presidency … as though he were doing the ‘morally right and compassionate thing’ but he did it AFTER Hillary lost the election.
So, like everything else in his Presidency, the refugees were nothing more than a political means to an end. The ‘end’, in this case, was doing everything he could to be obnoxious to Trump and his stated policy. In short … Obama’s ‘compasssion’ was actually SPITE.
Cold, reptillian, spite.
With the rise of such cynical ‘leaders’ on the left, we’ll need raise another generation of heroes to stand against them.
