FISCAL YEAR 2017 for admitting refugees started on October 1st! We already have admitted almost 35,000 refugees! This is disturbing and ridiculous! President Trump needs to put a cap on this ASAP! He’s already lowered Obama’s number of 110,000 to 50,000. Why not cap it at 35,000? The State Department has already admitted another 395 since yesterday!
Please go to the REFUGEE PROCESSING CENTER’S refugee website for a breakdown of where the refugees are coming from and other info: WRAPSNET
In September of each year, the President sends a determination letter (and report) to Congress and tells Congress how many refugees are proposed for the upcoming fiscal year that begins on October 1 and from which regions of the world they will be taken. Congress’ role is to “consult” only.
