(National Sentinel)Â Culture: On the campaign trail last year, then-GOP nominee Donald J. Trump pledged to halt the flow of humanity into the United States from around the world, and in large part from some the worst terrorism hotspots around the globe.
Silently, and with little fanfare, the president appears to be making good on that pledge.
As reported by theÂ Los Angeles Times, the number of refugees entering the U.S. has been cut nearly in half in the five months Trump has been president:
Government statistics released Friday showed thatÂ more than 25,000 refugees were permitted to enter and reside in the United States at the end of the Obama administration. In the initialÂ months under President Trump, the number fell to 13,000.
The statistics were released by the Department of Homeland Security, based on information supplied by the State Department.
The data suggest that the Obama administration, as it was about to turn over power to Trump, significantly stepped up the number of refugees admitted. Arrivals in its final three months reflected an 86%Â year-over-year increase compared to the same period the previous year.
In Trump’s first three months, arrivals were 12% lower than for the same period in the previous year.
European liberals and Left-wing groups in the U.S. complain that other countries are taking in far more refugees than the United States. They toss around the usual epithets of “racism” and “bigotry,” but the fact is, most Americans agree with Trump and do not want traditional American culture any more diluted that it already is by millions of people who, for decades, have not been required by policy to assimilateÂ our culture.
They also don’t want to import the terrorism and other cultural problems like the Europeans have done.
