Former President Barack Obama chastised the American people in front of world leaders saying that “accepting only Christians who are seeking asylum from war-torn countries is un-American and not who we are.”
According to the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and National Interest, it is clear that Obama purposely deceived the American people because it clearly shows that the surge in immigration to the U.S. is from majority-Muslim countries since he took office in 2009.
In a State Department briefing a department official said less than 2 percent of the Syrian refugees registered to the United States are Christian.
The Obama Administration was on pace to issue more than a million green cards to refugees from majority-Muslim countries, according to an analysis of Department of Homeland Security data, according to Breitbart.
A Green Card holder (permanent resident) is someone who has been granted authorization to live and work in the United States on a permanent basis.
Specifically, in the first six fiscal years of Obama’s presidency (FY2009 – FY2014), his administration issued 832,014 green cards to migrants from majority-Muslim countries, the most of which were issued to people from Pakistan (102,000), Iraq (102,000), Bangladesh (90,000), Iran (85,000), Egypt (56,000), and Somalia (37,000).
The total 832,014 new permanent residents do not include migrants on temporary, non-immigrant visas — which allow foreign nationals to come to the U.S. temporarily for work, study, tourism and the like. As the subcommittee notes, the number also does not include those migrants who overstayed the terms of their visas.
Regardless, as the subcommittee explained in its analysis, the U.S. is playing host to immigrants from majority Muslim countries at an increasing, and alarming pace.
Between FY 2013 and FY 2014, the number of green cards issued to migrants from Muslim-majority countries increased dramatically – from 117,423 in FY 2013, to 148,810 in FY 2014, a nearly 27 percent increase.
Throughout the Obama Administration’s tenure, the United States has issued green cards to an average of 138,669 migrants from Muslim-majority countries per year, meaning that it is nearly certain the United States will have issued green cards to at least 1.1 million migrants from Muslim-majority countries on Obama’s watch.
It has also been reported that migration from Muslim-majority countries represents the fastest growing class of migrants.
Green cards, or Lawful Permanent Residency, puts immigrants on the path to citizenship and allows for lifetime residency, federal benefits, and work authorization.
Included in the totals are refugees, who are required to apply for a green card after one year of residency in the U.S. Unlike other types of immigrants, refugees are immediately eligible for welfare benefits including Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), food stamps, and Medicaid.
A report from the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) indicated that in FY 2013, 91.4 percent of Middle Eastern refugees (accepted to the U.S. between 2008-2013) received food stamps, 73.1 percent were on Medicaid or Refugee Medical Assistance and 68.3 percent were on cash welfare.
What I find most disturbing about the list below is that these people are NOT all coming from ISIS ‘war-torn’ areas like Obama and mainstream media have led the American people to believe, and those that are in the war-torn areas should be relocated to temporary safe-zones within the Middles East – not flown across the globe to the United States to leach of American Taxpayers!
Immigrants are usually driven by economic factors, or they want to be close to family. Refugees are forced to relocate for reasons such as fear of persecution due to war, religion or political opinion. Immigrants can usually find a home in their new country.
The United States deficit is over $19 trillion and growing rapidly. Obama has committed American taxpayers to supporting these people for life at a cost of millions per year, and billions over their lifetime.
Green card totals issued by Obama FY09 to FY14:
FROM: Pakistan (102K), Iraq (102K), Bangladesh (90K), Iran (85K), Egypt (56K), Somalia (37K), Uzbekistan (30K), Turkey (26K), Morocco (25K), Jordan (25K), Albania (24K), Afghanistan (21K), Lebanon (20K), Yemen (20K), Syria (18K), Indonesia (17K), Sudan (15K), Sierra Leone (12K), Guinea (9K), Senegal (8K), Saudi Arabia (9K), Algeria (8K), Kazakhstan (8K), Kuwait (6K), Gambia (6K), United Arab Emirates (5K), Azerbaijan (4K), Mali (4K), Burkina Faso (3K), Kyrgyzstan (3K), Kosovo (3K), Mauritania (3K), Tunisia (2K), Tajikistan (2K), Libya (2K), Turkmenistan (1K), Qatar (1K), Chad (1K)
A chart made earlier this year with information culled from the Refugee Processing Center, an agency of the U.S. Department of State, shows where 76,922 Syrian refugees were placed in the U.S. in 2015.
President Donald Trump put a stop to the influx of immigrants and refugees coming entering the United States from six majority-Muslim countries unless they can prove a relationship with a U.S. person or entity.
The order targets six countries: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Migrants and refugees from those countries who are legal residents of the United States, already have obtained a visa or have a job offer from a U.S. company will be allowed to enter the United States, senior administration officials said in June. So too can individuals who have close family here, including parents, children and spouses.
Now that ISIS is being defeated, they can start to rebuild their homes with financial assistance from the wealthy Arab nations.
