Muslim Immigration Has Fallen Dramatically Under Trump

Rate this Entry
Via the Cato Institute:

Muslim refugee admissions have fallen dramatically over the past year. According to figures from the State Department, Muslim refugee flows fell 94 percent from January to November 2017 (the last full month of available data). In calendar 2016, the United States admitted almost 45,000 Muslim refugees, compared to a little more than 11,000 in 2017—fully half of those entered in January and February. Of course, the administration has cut refugee flows generally, but the Muslim share of all refugees has dropped substantially too—from 50 percent in January to less than 10 percent in November.



Immigration and travel from all countries has also declined this year, but the declines for Muslim majority countries were larger. They saw their share of all immigrant visa issuances fall 3 percent and their share of temporary visa approvals by 15 percent.

    Muslim admissions may be way down, but hate crimes against Muslims are reportedly way up under Dear Donald's Leadership.

    And Roger''s anti-Trump accusations are going strong too. Not every day, but has there been an entire week when he hasn't made Trump accusations?

    Trump is the one who is in effect begging for people who believe in our constitution, in racial equality and in democracy to condemn him, as USA Today has just done in an editorial which, according to the headlines I have seen, says that Trump is not fit to clean the White House toilets.

    No one would be able to point to anything that I have ever written to that effect, or close to it.

    But how can anyone who cares about racial equality, democracy or the Constitution hold back from condemning Trump over his support for Roy Moore, who openly praised the time of slavery and called for abolishing the constitutional protection against slavery and the amendments guaranteeing equal protection of the law, freedom of religion, due process of law and the vote for women, among other things? See:

    If Trump does not share these obnoxious views himself, why did he support someone who does have these views?

    We are not just talking about whether immigrants from this or that country, religion or skin color should be allowed to come to or stay in the United States; we are talking about the basic rights of all Americans and about what kind of country we will have in the future.

    See my comments about the Alabama election at

    http://blogs.ilw.com/entry.php?10277

    I will say one good thing about Trump and the Alabama election, however. He should be commended for his gracious reaction in congratulating Moore's opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, who is by all accounts a very decent man who prosecuted KKK members for one of their killings some years ago, on winning the election.

    Trump has reportedly invited Doug Jones to meet him at the White House.

    That is the way America is supposed to work.

    Highly doubtful.
