We have been reporting from time to time the number of Syrian refugees admitted to the US. You know that the resettlement contractors and the Senate Jihad Caucus are looking for the US to resettle 65,000 before Obama leaves office.
Using US State Department figures going back to January 1, 2012 we see that 1,487 Syrians have been admitted as of September 1 (a few days ago) and the vast majority (95%) are Muslims—Sunni Muslims. However, if one only looks at the calendar year 2015, the percentage of Muslims jumps to 97%! That is because the UN is telling us which refugees to take!
By the way there are 40-some Christians in that number and 1 Yazidi (and a few other religions, or no religion).
The 1,487 have been distributed to 36 states.
The top ten states receiving mostly Sunni Muslim Syrians since 1/1/2012 are as follows:
- Texas (173)
- California (162)
- Michigan (146)
- Illinois (120)
- Arizona (107)
- Florida (92)
- Pennsylvania (76)
- New Jersey (63)
- Massachusetts (58)
- Kentucky (55)
I’ll bet that one criteria used to determine where they have been sent is the number of mosques in the state.
Don’t forget that back in February the FBI testified before the House Homeland Security Committee that they could not adequately screen the Syrians for security.
For those readers just joining us today—PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION!
Watch for it! This month Obama will be announcing how many Syrians he wants admitted to the US in 2016! I’ll be watching what those Senators running for the Republican nomination for President will say as their states will be getting the bulk of the Syrians. Ted Cruz (TX), Rand Paul (KY), Chris Christie (NJ) and Marco Rubio (FL)—where are you?
