Stunning new numbers reported by Immigration Studies researcher Nayla Rush show that U.S. Refugee admissions are down 70% under President Trump.
Trump admitted 28,875 foreign refugees to the U.S. in his first 11 months in office, compared to 93,668 foreign refugees admitted in the same time period under Barack Obama.
The President has also lowered the refugee “cap” to 45,000 per fiscal year.

More from Breitbart:
Between Jan. 20 and Dec. 20, 2017, more than 53 percent of the 28,875 refugees resettled in the U.S. were Christians, while 32 percent were Muslim, 5.4 percent were Buddhist and nearly 4 percent were Hindu.
Compare that to Obama refugee resettlements in 2016 when 45 percent of the 93,668 refugees admitted were Muslim and 44 percent were Christians.
Due to left-wing judges holding up implementation of Trump’s travel ban — which sought to halt refugee resettlement to the U.S. from terrorist-funding countries — nearly 5,600 refugees from Somalia, Iran and Syria were able to enter the U.S. this year.
But, in December 2017, Trump’s travel ban on refugees from Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Somalia, Venezuela, and Yemen was able to be fully implemented, thus far ending refugee resettlement from these countries for the time being.
Under Trump, only roughly 2,000 Syrian refugees entered the U.S. in 2017, a far cry from the mass resettlement of more than 15,000 Syrian refugees in a single year under Obama.
Maybe the lower amount of suspicious names to track is part of the reason more and more U.S. terror-attempts are being foiled by law enforcement?
