Democrat presidential primary candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is promising to import at least 700% more foreign (When they say “foreign” now, it usually means Africa and the Middle East) so-called “refugees” into the United States if she becomes president— eight times the rate of President Trump’s refugee total last year, in which about 22,000 (mostly non-Muslim) were admitted.
Breitbart Warren’s Obama-like immigration plan includes drastically increasing immigration and refugee resettlement to provide businesses and corporations with a never-ending stream of cheaper foreign workers that America’s working and middle class will be forced to compete against.
The U.S., thanks exclusively to Trump’s reforms, helped lower the total number of foreign refugees to about 22,000 admissions last year. This is a 76 percent decrease in foreign refugee resettlement from President Obama’s 2016 totals that reached almost 100,000 admissions. Trump also cut Obama’s surge of Syrian refugees arriving in the U.S. by more than 60 percent.
Warren would reverse that reduction of foreign refugees, adding another at least 154,000 – 175,000 so-called “refugees” to American communities every year who would be forced to absorb nationals at the mandate of the federal government.
For Fiscal Year 2019, a cap of 30,000 refugee admissions has been set — the lowest cap since 1980 — which is merely a numerical limit and not a goal intended for the federal government to reach. The cap has made the U.S. no longer the top refugee spot for the world’s migrants, with Canada and the nations of the European Union now leading the globe in refugee admissions.
Over the last decade, the U.S. has resettled more foreign nationals through a variety of humanitarian programs than the entire population of Philadelphia, totaling more than 1.7 million refugees admitted to the country in less than ten years. Simultaneously, there have been more than 4.1 million legal immigrants admitted to the U.S. from refugee-producing countries since 2000.
About 56 percent of households headed by foreign refugees who arrived in the U.S. between 2011 and 2015 are using taxpayer-funded welfare benefits, Breitbart News previously reported.
