Trump cuts refugees to record low

Original Article

Posted By: Ribicon, 10/1/2020 6:07:00 PM

The administration has set a cap of admitting no more than 15,000 refugees in fiscal year 2021, marking the lowest number on record and completing President Trump’s goal of restructuring the modern refugee system. The number marks the fourth straight year of cuts—last year’s cap was 18,000—and underscores the deep political divide between Mr. Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden, who has said he would set the cap at 125,000 refugees. State Department officials informed Congress of Mr. Trump’s number just before a midnight Thursday deadline, when the fiscal year began. And they set the number without the consultation the law

Comments:

I'd go farther and send refugees back from whence they came, but this beats the alternative proffered by Angry Democrats.

Sweden, Norway and Denmark (Greenland in particular) are prime resettlement countries, as are Russia, Mongolia, China, Japan, Argentina and the Vatican.

Refugees should be settled in their own country. Only under rare exceptions should they be allowed to come here and become Democrat voters.

Resettlement solves nothing. The causes for refugees should be addressed up to and including overthrow of offending governments, hunting down and killing warlords and terrorists and setting up sustainable economies. Unless this is done, there will be an endless flow of refugees to the west and suffering will continue. This is negatively altering the cultural and political stability of the destination countries. Unfortunately the UN appears helpless except in cases of natural disaster. They completely fail when it comes to man-made disasters and rely on a handful of Western countries to do the work without political support. By the way, Palestinians are considered refugees, many 3rd generation.

The ONLY Muslims allowed should be FORMER ones, i.e. Christian converts, preferably female with males requiring a more thorough vetting, as we know Muslims are allowed to lie/cheat/steal IF it has anything to do with killing infidels.

Too many Americans unemployed and even homeless to be allowing large numbers of refugees into the country. The country should always take care of Americans first.

The head of the Homeland Security Department’s intelligence unit told Congress on Friday that there was an attempt to push staffers in the division to characterize certain people as “Antifa,” and he said that is now being reviewed by an inspector general. Joseph Maher said he became aware of an email by his predecessor, Brian Murphy, that carried that directive. “The email instructed intelligence professionals to characterize activities of certain individuals in a certain way,” he said. He also said federal police took phones from people they arrested during Portland’s riots, confirming reports. But he said intelligence analysts did not “exploit” those phones

Donald Trump said Thursday he will overturn the 'ridiculous order' of removing the words 'brotherhood' and 'man' from the US Navy SEAL ethos. In a tweet responding to the news, the president wrote: 'I will be overturning this ridiculous order immediately!' The Navy has removed gendered words from its official SEAL ethos, changing them to 'citizen' and 'warrior'. Alterations have also been made in the Special Warfare Combatant Crewmen (SWCC) creed, American Military News reports. One change in the first paragraph of the SEAL ethos now reads: 'I am that warrior.' It had read: 'I am that man.' Another states: 'Common citizens with uncommon

A federal judge Thursday halted a Justice Department commission studying issues plaguing the law enforcement community from releasing its report because the panel excluded civil rights leaders. U.S. District Judge John Bates ruled the much-ballyhooed Presidential Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice violated the Federal Advisory Committee Act, which requires government committees to receive input from “fairly balanced” viewpoints. Judge Bates, a George W. Bush appointee, wrote in his 45-page opinion that the commission was full of law enforcement officials, but none of the members have “a criminal defense, civil rights, or community organization background.”

The US Navy SEALs have changed their creed statement to become gender-neutral and have eliminated terms such as “brotherhood,” according to a report. “Naval Special Warfare continues to deliberately develop a culture of tactical and ethical excellence that reflects the nation we represent, and that draws upon the talents of the all-volunteer force who meet the standards of qualification as a SEAL or SWCC,” Navy Special Warfare spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Matthew Stroup told American Military News.(Snip) Instead of “A common man with uncommon desire to succeed,” it now says: “Common citizens with uncommon desire to succeed.” Another alters “I am that man”

With 24 hours having passed since the first presidential debate, it’s becoming clear that Trump won in a big way. It wasn’t an apparent victory, but it was a real one: He showed his base and ordinary Americans that he will always fight while forcing Biden to disavow both his hard-left base and the last of the old-fashioned Democrats who still support him Don’t pay too much attention to the pessimistic pundits. The worriers worried, the haters hated, the ambivalent were ambivalent, the cheerleaders cheered. Personality may not be destiny, but it determines post-debates reviews.

In two Facebook posts, one of which has since been deleted, Kim Donohue alleged that during a remembrance ceremony in Boston, a year after the April 2013 deadly bombing, then-Vice President Biden began "rubbing" her lower back. "Look at those eyes, where did you get those eyes?" Donohue wrote. "Anyone else as good looking as you in that family ... those eyes are mesmerizing, people must just do whatever you say."
