15,726 refugees admitted to US since Inauguration Day, see where they went, by Ann Corcoran on May 31, 2017
I recommend that all of you interested in the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program have some fun at the Refugee Processing Center (aka Wrapsnet). Play around with the databases and you can learn a lot about what is happening in your state and of course in the country.
Because Donald Trump has not put his people in place in the DOS, Simon Henshaw, a career official, is in charge of the US Refugee Admissions Program.
Today I wanted to see exactly who are the Trump refugees and where were they placed.
Here (below) is the breakdown of nationalities (top 12) admitted by the Trump Department of State which is still largely being run by the bureaucrats because, at least for the department of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM), there is still no Trump appointee running the bureau.
Henshaw, at right, would have been the person responsible for the shocking announcement last week that the number of refugees arriving per week are going to jump dramatically.***
Here are the top 12 sending countries:
DR Congo (2,579) The Obama Administration promised the UN we would take 50,000 and we are getting pretty close now.
Burma (2,083) A whopping 541 of these are Muslim Rohingya
El Salvador (392) Not refugees, these are the result of a special illegal program Obama set up!
So where did Trump’s 15,726 refugees go: 15,726 is about 874 refugees a week entering the US since Trump was inaugurated. We are told that the number will be jumping to 1,500 a week shortly.
