Most people don’t know this, but in Obama’s last three months, there were 25,000 refugees accepted into the US. Under President Trump, 13,000 refugees have been admitted into the country. It’s mostly because of the travel ban. Remember what Obama said about the refugees?
The executive travel ban that Trump introduced at the beginning of the year caused the first major dip. It stopped people from coming in from Muslim-majority countries.
Obama had a quota in 2016 of getting 110,000 refugees. This is tiny compared to the number that of Germany – who accepts a million a year. According to Pew Research, 116,000 refugees were accepted in 2016 – this is the largest in more than a decade for the US. Trump has dramatically decreased the flow.
Trump has drastically reduced the number to a quota of 50,000 for 2017. It’s not set in stone because courts are likely to challenge, according to Daily Mail.
** Share this if you are glad that we have Trump right now and are finally slowing down Obama’s refugees!
