Obama Dumps “Refugees” into Red States

2

As a going away present to the states which most soundly rejected his chosen successor, President Barack Obama is flooding red states with so-called “refugees” while pointedly keeping them out of blue states.

The red state of Nebraska is taking the hardest hit from Obama’s “refugee” resettlement program in the first three months of fiscal year 2017:

The refugee resettlement rate for FY 2017 to date is significantly higher in Nebraska than it has been during any other year in the more three decades the state has participated in the federal refugee resettlement program.

The highest previous annual resettlement of refugees in the state since FY 2003 occurred in FY 2016, when 1,441 refugees were resettled. The highest previous annual resettlement of refugees in the state since FY 2003 occurred in FY 2016, when 1,441 refugees were resettled.

While it may be a coincidence that Nebraska is the highest per capita depository for “refugees”, taking a look at the whole list is an eye-opener:

Nebraska, a red state, voted for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election by a 60 percent to 34 percent margin.

Four more red states round out the top five recipients of resettled refugees on a per capita basis during the first three months of FY 2017.

In North Dakota, where Donald Trump won by a 64 percent to 28 percent margin, the federal government resettled 21.6 refugees per 100,000 residents.

In Kentucky, where Donald Trump won by a 62 percent to 32 percent margin, the federal government resettled 19.7 refugees per 100,000 residents.

In Arizona, where Donald Trump won by a 49 percent to 45 percent margin, the federal government resettled 19.5 refugees per 100,000 residents.

In Idaho, where Donald Trump won by a 59 percent to 28 percent margin, the federal government resettled 19.0 refugees per 100,000 residents.

Unsurprisingly, a few states are being spared the huge cost of resettling so-called “refugees”:

Delaware, the state Vice President Joe Biden represented in the United States Senate for forty years, received no refugees at all during this period. In fact, Delaware did not resettle a single refugee in FY 2016. In the fourteen full fiscal years since 2003, the federal government has resettled only 130 refugees in the state.

Hawaii, President Obama’s home state before he moved to Illinois, resettled only three refugees during the first three months of FY 2017, a per capita rate of 0.2 per 100,000 residents, well below the national average.

Illinois, which President Obama represented in the United States Senate prior to his election as president in 2008, resettled only 6.2 refugees per 100,000 residents during the first three months of FY 2017, a per capita rate below the national average.

President Obama is making it crystal clear: he’s going to punish his political enemies with the social and economic costs of dangerous “refugees” even as he slinks off into retirement.
