President Donald Trump made a promise to the American people during the 2016 presidential campaign: He would reduce the number of refugees coming into America.
The reason was simple: Middle Eastern refugees were entering America at a ridiculously rapid pace, undergoing minimal background checks in order to add even more haste to the process. This obviously leads to dangerous situations in which ISIS and other caliphate organizations are able to exploit these migration patterns to expand their grip on the modern world. The terror organization has openly admitted to posing operatives as Syrian refugees for this sole purpose, leading a vast majority of Americans to question our lax immigration policies.
For what it’s worth, President Trump has twice attempted to quell the onslaught of migrants from terror-sponsoring nations through the use of executive orders. Twice, our President has been denied by meddling, leftist judges looking to make a name for themselves in the “resistance”.
It’s no matter, however, as Trump’s mere presence in the Oval Office has apparently done the trick.
“The number of refugees who entered the U.S. during President Trump’s first three months compared to the last months of President Obama’s term was cut nearly in half, according to statistics released Friday by the Department of Homeland Security.
“According to the statistics, a total of 13,000 refugees were admitted to the U.S. in the past three months, compared to 25,000 under Obama, The Los Angeles Times reported. The most popular countries of origins remained the same: Democratic Republic of the Congo, Syria, Iraq, Somalia and Myanmar.
“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.”
It seems as though the return to law and order promised to us by then-candidate Trump is coming to fruition.
The phenomenon has been dubbed The Trump Effect by those fortunate enough to witness it. The simple fact that Donald Trump is resting his head at night in the White House is enough for the country to self-govern some of the more poignant issues facing us. This, truth be told, is the sign of a strong leader, despite whatever nonsense is wafting over from the left regarding Trump’s efficacy.
