Where In America Is The Obama Administration Settling The Syrians?


President Obama tweeted in late September that he would increase the number of Syrian and other refugees we admit to the U.S. to 100,000 per year for the next two years.  So where are they being resettled?  The answer comes from The New York Times, see graphic below:


Top 9 countries of origin for refugees admitted in fiscal year of 2015 were: Myanmar about 17,000; Iraq about 12,500; Somalia about 9,000; Dem. Rep. of Congo about 7,000; Bhutan about 6,000; Iran about 3,000; Syria about 2,000; Eritrea about 2,000; and Sudan about 2,000.

Refugees trying to reach the United States must apply through the United Nations, and before being accepted, they are screened by the F.B.I. and through databases run by the Defense Department and other federal agencies.  President Obama said the U.S. would take in at least 10,000 displaced Syrians next year.  More than 150,000 Syrians already live in the United States.

Some cities in the U.S. already have resisted to settling Muslim refugees, arguing that the federal government cannot possibly screen out terrorists and more Muslim migrants would threaten American culture.  Watch the events in Paris and elsewhere in Europe   where Muslim immigrants are not getting along with local citizens.  Globalism uses multiculturalism to subvert sovereign nations wrote, Kerry Bolton in his writing about the Rivkin Project.
