Trump Debates Lowering Refugee Admissions to 50K

The Trump administration is considering reducing the number of refugees admitted to the United States over the next year to 50,000, current and former government officials told the New York Times Tuesday

As a deadline for Trump to set numbers for refugee admissions for next year approaches on October 1, the issue has set off intense debate inside the White House.

Some of Trump’s advisers have argued for lower ceilings. Trump’s senior adviser for policy Stephen Miller has advocated for reducing it to 15,000, and his former chief strategist Steve Bannon was in favor of reducing it to 10,000.

Trump on the campaign trail promised to deny entry to refugees who posed a terrorist threat. Early on in office, he capped the number at 50,000 as part of a temporary ban on travel from seven predominantly Muslim countries. That more than halved the 110,000 former President Obama had set for 2016.

Officials at the Department of Homeland Security want to cut the number to 40,000, citing security concerns and limited resources, while officials at the National Security Council, the State Department, and the Defense Department oppose such a “precipitous drop,” according to the Times.

    I think 10,000 for the next fiscal year is still too many, in view of the terror attacks
    this week in Paris and London!! We still have to deal with the DACA 800,000!
    Our military, our naval ships in need of repair, and are veterans hospitals should be a priority before money is allocated to immigrants !! Just my humble opine!
    Let’s truly MAGA 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  • Jimwolf

    A happy medium of 20,000 would be appropriate after the London Terrorist attack today..

      Why so many? Help them where they are as we already do.

  • kbfallon

    If they allow the DACA program to continue….then stop all immigration from Mexico for at least ten years..that would be 80,000 per year averaged out….and STOP the chain migrations. Still way too many. As for the others….5000 should be more than enough while we still aid them where they are.

  • David Moldenhauer

    Don’t allocate any money to migrants. If they are not self supporting, they can stay where they are. So far the vast majority have been back street bums. I have yet to talk to a Muslim that was fluent in English, employable, and was actually willing to live by the Law Of The Land.

  • Ah nutz

    how about ZERO ? we’re overloaded already.

  • david

    10,000 and stop daca completely, build the wall. How long do we tax payers have to support these illegals anyway We are over run with them the way it is now time to put a stop to it once and for all.

  • Bishop351

    How about letting let those Obama let in camp on his lawn, and cut the current discussion to zero.

  • roninrus1

    Show pictures of kids and then the majority they bring in are young, healthy males who should be in their own country trying to improve things. Bait and switch is illegal isn’t it? Oh, wait. This is the government being talked about. Lying and cheating is a qualification to work there.

  • michael t

    send the daca folks back. they pushed online in front of our own children and they are all illegal


    Just more mouths that the tax payers will have to feed. They always sow oictures like this to help us feel sorry for them I don’t. What ever happened to their countries is their fault. we fought for our country and indpendence.

  • Paul

  • Jethro Bodine

    How about zero ! Until we get our shit straight!!

  • Jaron Gant Joyner

    Lower it as much as you can-We have had enough of Refugees and Illegals-America is feed-up with being Used.!!!

  • gene smiith

    Considering the amount of trouble currently being exhibited in this Country by all sorts of people, citizens, Authorities, illegal Aliens etc….I think one thing is certain, we don’t need more trouble, and more people equals more trouble.
    Let’s cool it for a year or so….let’s see if the Leftist goons will come to their senses and give the rest of us some peace….failing that, exchange one of them for a refugee….I’m certain the refugee will be better behaved and a lot more respectable and appreciative…..yes, great idea if I do say so myself.
