THE REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT FACT SHEET IS A SHOCKER – PLEASE READ! Here’s a little background on the refugee resettlement scam:

• Since 1975, the U.S. has resettled over 3 million refugees, with annual admissions figures ranging from a high of 207,000 in 1980 to a low of 27,110 in 2002 (in the aftermath of 911) .

•The average number of refugees admitted annually since 1980 is about 98,000. Additionally, in recent years, another 40,000 or more per year come in as asylum seekers and Cuban/Haitian entrants – all with the same rights and entitlements as refugees.

•All these flows detonate their own chain migration flows in addition to the refugee influx. These follow-on flows have easily multiplied the original admission numbers by a factor of 4 or more.

• There is strong political pressure to get refugee numbers back to over 100,000.

2. The U.S. takes more than twice as many refugees as all countries from the rest of the industrialized world combined.

HOW ABOUT THIS SHOCKER: Since 2000, the United States has accepted more than 85,000 refugees from Bhutan – the equivalent of 10 percent of its current population, according to the World Bank.

HERE’S A LIBERAL LEANING ARTICLE FROM OREGON THAT DESCRIBES WHY THE REFUGEES HAVE COME TO AMERICA: 

Oregonian/OregonLive data expert Mark Graves has done some digging into recent refugee statistics. Here are five highlights from his work:

1. Iraqi refugees make up the largest population of newcomers in Oregon, and most of the Western United States.

Decades of war and civil unrest have led to mass immigration out of Iraq. In July 2014, the United Nations reported that more that 1.9 million Iraqis have lost or been forced from their homes in the past 20 years. According to Brown University researchers, the United States’ invasion in 2003 displaced one in 25 Iraqis. The rise of ISIS has only intensified the diaspora.

2. Despite fleeing different continents, refugees share some common traits: They’re fleeing war, genocide, mass poverty and famine and in many cases generations of civil unrest.

Since 2001, the top three refugee groups in the United States have come from Burma, Iraq and Somalia.

3. It can take years for violence to translate into mass migration. From 2001 through 2015, the United States has accepted just 2,064 refugees from Syria, and just 215 from 2012 through 2014. The flow of Syrian refugees seems certain to intensify. Similarly, despite terrorism and war, the United States took in just 668 Pakistanis and 8 Nigerians during 2012-2014.

4. The flood of Eastern European refugees that remade parts of the Portland region’s fringes has slowed. From 2012 through 2014, Oregon became the new home to 85 people fleeing the Ukraine.

But immigrant groups will continue to reshape the face of Oregon, particularly in places where low rents tend to attract new arrivals. East Portland, for example, is already dotted with shops catering to Russian, Ukrainian and Vietnamese immigrants. This latest wave of migration will likely result in more businesses and cultural institutions from the Middle East, Southeast Asia and the Horn of Africa.

5. The treatment of a group of Bhutanese people known as Lhotshampas is one of the great under-covered human rights crises of our time.

Bhutan, a small Himalayan nation, has three primary ethnic groups. The Ngalongs and Sarchops practice Buddhism and speak a language called Dzongkha. The Lhotshampas practice Hinduism and speak Nepali.

Starting in the 1980s, Bhutan’s king began requiring Lhotshampas to assimilate – or find new homes. Tens of thousands have been moved to refugee camps in Nepal, and they’re gradually making their way to Western nations.

Since 2000, the United States has accepted more than 85,000 refugees from Bhutan – the equivalent of 10 percent of its current population, according to the World Bank.
