Apparently there is no effort being made to resettle more persecuted Christians from Syria than Obama did last year.
1,069 Syrians have been spread around America in the first three weeks of FY2017. That is 356 a week. 99% or 1,054 practice some form of Islam. The vast majority are Sunni Muslims.
There will most likely be 20,000 Syrian (99%) Muslim refugees admitted to the U.S. by September 30, 2017, UNLESS Congress cuts the funding for the program next month!
There were 4 Catholics, 3 Christians and 8 Orthodox identified in the flow.
The top state receiving them was Michigan (by far!).
Here are the top ten receiving states:
New York (60)
See the map from the Refugee Processing Center for the first 3 weeks of the fiscal year (30 states received Syrians so far, assuming I counted them correctly!):
Don’t like what you see?
There is only one thing you can do to slow this flow (besides electing Donald Trump) which at this rate would bring around 20,000 Syrians to America by next fall and that is to persuade your member of Congress and US Senators to DEFUND the program in the lame duck Budget debate coming in November.
See the first in a series of posts on the lame duck budget process by clicking here. This is not about Obama, your Congressional Representatives have the power to rein this in if they wanted to (and they don’t want you to know that they have that power!).
You have 16 days before election day to get a commitment from your Washington, DC representatives to DEFUND!
