Despite activist judges, refugees admitted in US cut nearly in half under Trump

Despite the best efforts of liberal judges to run interference, the number of refugees being accepted by the U.S. was cut nearly in half in the first three months President Donald Trump was in office.

…and we’re still talking 13,000 refugees being admitted.

Homeland Security statistics show that number being a sharp decrease from 25,000 admitted during the last months of President Barack Obama’s term, according to Fox News.

Muslim-dominant Syria, Iraq and Somalia remain among the leading countries of origin.

More from Fox News:

“Obama set the ceiling of 110,000 refugee arrivals across the U.S. President Trump cut that number to 50,000 this year. Congress has approved a budget for only 75,000 for this fiscal year. A U.S. State Department spokesman said the country is now resettling 900 refugee arrivals weekly, to remain within that budget.”


And while that is still a significant number, the reaction on social media shows that folks appreciate a president willing to put the safety of Americans first.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
