Refugee Admissions Down 70% Under Trump
During the 2016 Election cycle, candidate Trump made a promise to the American people that he would limit the admission of refugees from countries that are terrorist hotbeds. He stressed the point that we cannot properly vet these people so we can’t let them all into the country with the interest of national security at the forefront. In the first year under President Trump, the U.S. saw a 70% decline in refugees coming from these terrorist hotbeds.
In the First 365 days of the Trump administration, we saw a decline of over 70% in refugees coming to the United States from terrorist hotbeds. This all started last year when President Trump introduced his travel bans that included the countries Syria, Iraq, Somalia, Iran, Sudan, Yemen, and Libya. The travel ban was at first knocked down a few times but eventually upheld by the Supreme Court.
The United States saw an 88% decrease in immigration from Syria in the first year of President Trump's administration. In 2016 under President Obama, 16,395 refugees came from Syria. In 2017 under President Trump that number went down to 1,972. There was also an 80% decrease in refugees from Iraq last year. In 2016 under President Obama 11,940 refugees came to the United States. In 2017 under President Trump we saw that number decrease to 2,308. The U.S. saw a 77% decrease in immigration from Somalia last year. In 2016 under President Obama we saw 10,811 refugees come to America. In 2017 Under President Trump that number shrunk to 2,454. Iran immigration dropped 75% last year. In 2016 under President Obama we saw 4,412 refugees come to America. In 2017 under President Trump that number decreased to 1,124. Immigration from Sudan dropped 61 percent last year. In 2016 under President Obama we saw 1,524 refugees. In 2017 under President Trump that number dropped to 601. Yemen immigration dropped 42%. In 2016 under President Obama we saw 28 refugees come to America. In 2017 under President Trump we saw that number decreased to 16. Lastly, Libya immigration dropped 100%. In 2016 under President Obama we saw four refugees. In 2017 under President Trump there were no refugees from Libya.
These numbers say something about President Trump’s promise to decrease immigration from war-torn, terrorist hotbeds. Even though it took some time to get the travel ban through the court system, President Trump still kept his promise to curtail the refugee influx.
