For the first time in 30 years, when records began, the United States admitted no refugees in October, according to the British Daily Mail.
To the outrage of leftists around the world, the Trump administration admitted exactly zero refugees in October, a previously unheard-of number for the country that historically has been known for admitting more refugees than all other countries combined.
Trump has systematically cut the cap on new admittances each year of his administration. While the Obama administration admitted 110,000 refugees in its last year of 2016, Trump cut that figure to 50,000 in 2017 and again to 45,000 in 2018 and down to 30,000 in 2019. He has announced a cap of 18,000 refugees in the 2020 fiscal year, which will be the lowest number ever.
The cutbacks come at a time when refugees of third world nations are increasingly demanding to be repatriated to preferred countries, often the United States.
Refugee support organizations everywhere are screaming that the sky is falling, but for the first time in memory, an American president seems to be taking his own country’s side.
