Trump officials pressing to slash refugee admissions to zero next year

The Trump administration is considering a virtual shutdown of refugee admissions next year — cutting the number to nearly zero — according to three people familiar with the plan.

During a key meeting of security officials on refugee admissions last week, a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services representative who is closely aligned with White House immigration adviser Stephen Miller suggested setting a cap at zero, the people said. Homeland Security Department officials at the meeting later floated making the level anywhere from 3,000 to 10,000, according to one of the people.

The proposal for a near-shutdown of the refugee program is alarming officials at the Department of Defense, who don’t want to see a halt in admissions of Iraqis who risked their lives assisting U.S. forces in that country. The possible move comes after the Trump administration cut refugee admissions by a third this year, to 30,000...

I guess he plans to keep Melania another year and won't need another import.

He's a monster of a person, but he's just misusing the tools we gave him. It's nuts that we give the executive branch the power to do this at all.

I’m really surprised they aren’t going for negative numbers of refugees.

Of course they are. This just shows how little they understand about math.

Meanwhile, Social Security doesn't have enough young workers in the mix to support the Boomers' benefits. There are thousands of consumers and taxpayers waiting for their shot at the capitalist dream in cages at the border.

White billionaires don’t care about social security.
