The Obama administration will seek to accept 110,000 refugees from around the world in fiscal 2017, officials announced Wednesday.
Secretary of State John F. Kerry briefed lawmakers Tuesday on the new goal, which is an increase from 85,000 in fiscal 2016 and 70,000 in the previous three years. It represents a 57 percent increase in refugee arrivals since 2015, as ongoing conflicts in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere have spurred an exodus of migrants seeking asylum in Europe, Canada and other regions.
Secretary of State John Kerry briefed Congress on Tuesday about the administration’s decision and has stated over the past year that the United States would seek to welcome 100,000 refugees in 2017 — and if possible, would accept more. (emphasis mine)
The increase — from 70,000 during 2013-2015 to 85,000 in 2016 to the plan of 110,000 in 2017 — is more than a 57% increase in refugee arrivals since 2015 and consistent with the administration’s belief that all countries should do more to help vulnerable people.
The United States’ refugee policy has been a top campaign issue in the 2016 election. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump made waves last December when he proposed a temporary ban on all Muslims immigrating to the United States.
Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee, has said that she would like to see the number of Syrian refugees accepted into the United States increase from the Obama administration’s goal of 10,000 a year to 65,000 refugees.
I guess we never thought that Hillary’s plan for 65,000 more would look good, did we?
So it’s clear that the refugee thing is working out really well in Germany, so it’s no wonder that Barack Obama wants to replicate that success here. Actually, as you know, this whole “refugee” and “asylum” scheme is part of the Democrats’ master plan to change our country’s demographics to turn the whole country into California or Cook County; that is, to dramatically improve the political fortunes of democrats for generations. In other words, to destroy America. It’s a cynical ploy that demonstrates what these cockroaches are all about: gaining power at the expense of the safety and security of you and your family.
Back to Germany, where one way that the “refugees” have enriched that country with their contributions to its “diversity” is through sexual assault. And how have the authorities there decided to handle this problem? By rounding up these dirtbags and shipping them back to their Middle Eastern hellholes? Not exactly.
As World Net Daily reports, they advise women to wear sneakers so that they can run away. I suggest you read the whole story to get an idea of the sort of surrender to these Islamists that Europe has begun. Is that really what we want to do here?

Iraqi Refugee Diagnosed With Active TB in Oakland County, Michigan(“An Iraqi refugee who arrived in Oakland County, Michigan in June 2015 was diagnosed with active tuberculosis (TB) in March of this year, a spokesperson for the Oakland County Health and Human Services Department (OCHD) tells Breitbart News.”) How many of your friends, neighbors and co-workers know that there are people walking around in stores, schools and other places with TB? Did you?
