Illegal immigrants and refugees have been flooding into the U.S. for years.
From day one, President Donald Trump swore he’d reduce this flood to a trickle, despite the many protestations of the Left.
ICE has been making steady progress ever since Trump took office; the immigration officials just finished a particularly effective sweep.
Trump’s executive orders to combat this issue have allowed the country to take the proper steps, and Trump has continued to deliver one forceful message:
Illegals who come here and threaten American lives will be dealt with…severely.
As for the refugee horde, we all know that not every refugee is just a peace-loving individual seeking asylum in our great nation. No, they can pose an even greater threat than regular ol’ illegal aliens.
Which is why a recent USA Today analysis has us in VERY high spirits.
“The number of refugees arriving in the United States has dropped sharply this year because of President Trump’s threats to bar their entry, even though his order for a total 120-day ban has been blocked twice by federal courts.
The U.S. accepted 2,070 refugees in March, the lowest monthly total since 2013, according to State Department data. April ended with 3,316 refugees admitted, the second-lowest total since 2013.”
Granted, refugees fleeing war, natural disasters, and other atrocities deserve compassion. But when Barack Obama increased the number of refugees America accepts (from 70,000 in fiscal year 2015 to 85,000 in 2016 and a proposed 110,000 in 2017), well..
Enough is enough.
Trump aims to lower the number to 50,000 because among those refugees are terrorists, guaranteed. And we absolutely have to protect our borders at all costs right now.
Though a federal judge in Seattle blocked Trump’s first order that suspended the refugee invasion, the order to put the annual cap at 50,000 remained in effect for almost two months.
The result? Well, what you see here. And after Obama’s highly questionable actions in this realm, it’s a refreshing step in the RIGHT direction.
