The President promised to slow the flow of people streaming across our border, and it’s working.
Contrary to the Open-Borders activists on the left, there is no such thing as a ‘right’ to move to the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.
The Trump administration beat the president’s goal of trimming new refugee admissions from the 100,000 brought in by former President Obama, slashing the population by 66 percent.
New data from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees showed that the U.S. took in 33,000 refugees last year, down from 97,000 under Obama, who had pushed to raise the ceiling to 110,000.
President Trump vowed to reverse that flow, raising concerns that refugees were not being vetted well by the United Nations. He pushed to cut refugees to 45,000 a year.
The majority of refugees to the U.S. come from the Middle East and Africa. But U.S. generosity is not met by wealthy nations in that region, such as UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait, who refuse to take in the refugees. And while the U.S. and Europe are criticized by the U.N. for not doing more, little anger is directed at those Middle Eastern nations.

But for anyone who STILL thinks America isn’t ‘doing our share’ to help others in need, we have an answer for that, too.
From the same article:
In fact, for the first time, the U.S. resettled fewer refugees than the rest of the world, but still more than [any] other country.
Literally NO other country IN THE WORLD takes in as many refugees as Uncle Sam.
Maybe Acosta should have looked up that fact before hate-tweeting that poem about ‘huddled masses’.
And if THAT weren’t enough, there’s this, too.

Let the protesters turn their attention to some of those oil-rich dictatorships, or Socialist countries to throw open THEIR borders and try to match what we have ALREADY done for ‘the cause’.
