Amid the collective liberal meltdown over the cruelty of President Donald Trump’s immigrant travel ban, the administration has actually granted waivers to nearly 900 refugees.
Waivers to let 872 refugees into the country this week have been granted by the U.S. government despite last week’s executive order temporarily suspending entry for immigrants, according to a Reuters report citing an internal Department of Homeland Security document.
Libs are wrong about Hillary Clinton’s popular vote; you can shut down debate with this under-reported fact
Political commentator and talk show host, Laura Ingraham, summed it up in a sarcastic tweet on Tuesday.
Heartless! Trump admin to allow 872 refugees into U.S. this week. https://t.co/4xpn3Qk4Y5

The waivers were issued to refugees who had been cleared and were considered “in transit” before the ban took effect, an anonymous Homeland Security official told Reuters.
The nationalities of the refugees granted the waivers by the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security were not revealed in the document, though the ban in Trump’s order was specifically aimed at those coming from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya and Yemen.
According to Reuters:
The 872 refugees to be admitted this week, under the waivers, were screened using Obama administration procedures, which typically take two years and include several interviews and a background check.
The DHS said on Sunday night that green card holders would be allowed to board U.S.-bound flights, but would be subjected to additional scrutiny upon arrival.
The public guidance from DHS also said some people from the seven majority-Muslim countries could be allowed entry to the United States on a case-by-case basis.
