Number of refugees admitted into US drops by 50 percent

The number of refugees who entered the U.S. during President Trump’s first three months compared to the last months of President Obama’s term was cut nearly in half, according to statistics released Friday by the Department of Homeland Security.

According to the statistics, a total of 13,000 refugees were admitted to the U.S. in the past three months, compared to 25,000 under Obama, The Los Angeles Times reported. The most popular countries of origins remained the same: Democratic Republic of the Congo, Syria, Iraq, Somalia and Myanmar.

      Secondarily, Western Civilization guilt, believing that all wealth in the world is a zero sum game, where the success of the West and its wealth is only at the detriment of third world countries and cultures because we are supposed to have stolen their success by some inexplicable process.

      All with the help of our moron of a Prime Minister. Canadians are losing their country and don’t even realize it is happening. Our grandchildren are the ones that will become displaced out of the country that their ancestors fought and died for. I guess we don’t have the same backbone our ancestors had. Shame on us for letting this happen to our once great country.

    I’m guessing that it isn’t Buddhist refugees arriving from Myanmar. LOL
