Middle East Refugee Resettlements Plummet Under Trump

(LifeZette) Although the federal courts blocked President Donald Trump from formally lowering the cap on refugee admissions to 50,000, he largely achieved the goal in practice, statistics released Thursday show.

50K Refugee Cap Reached; Only Those w/ Family Relationships Now Allowed

According to the State Department’s Refugee Processing Center, the United States resettled 53,716 refugees in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30. That is a 36.8 percent reduction from fiscal year 2016 and the lowest number since 2007.
The Trump administration has established a cap of 45,000 for the current fiscal year. That is the lowest number since the program was created in 1980 and a dramatic departure from a ramp-up as part of a campaign to take in more refugees from the 6-year-old Syrian civil war.
Obama had set the fiscal year 2017 refugee cap at 110,000. Trump ordered that reduced to 50,000 as part of an executive order temporarily blocking travelers from seven — and then six in a revised order — terrorism-compromised countries. But the courts blocked the entire executive order.
Even with uncertainty over the official number, however, refugee resettlements in the United States plummeted each month Trump has been in office until an uptick last month. Relocations dropped from 6,777 in January to just 913 in August, before rebounding 324 last month. The country resettled more people during the first four months — when Obama was still president — than it did in the final eight.

“Most of them came before [Trump took office], and then a little bit came after that,” said Nayla Rush, a senior researcher at the Center for Immigration Studies.
