FACTS ON SYRIAN AND ALL REFUGEES TO EUROPE
Facts: Syrian Refugees — Eugene Kiely, Robert Farley and D’Angelo Gore
REFUGEE FACTS = THE GOP LIES
FACT: By law, US administration can admit about 10,000 in 2016 with no refugee commitments beyond that.
SEE GRAPH OF Refugee Ceilings and Admitted Refugees to the United States, FY 2009-2015:
US HISTORIC Total = 2,290 Syrian refugees since 2011 = 62 were Christian (3%) = All were referred to U.S. by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees = 2,127 are Sunni Muslims (93%)
FACT: US = 23,826 total applicants with 15,937 women andchildren under 12 (67%) + 25.5% Men age 18+ = Not all 23,826 refugees to U.S. will be admitted.
U.S. refugees come from people still remaining in the Middle East = Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan are largely women and children = 67% are children 12 and women.
FACT: Most Syrians are Sunni refugees = RESULT of bombardments in war and fleeing the fighting of those not with the Assad regime = Much of the fighting has been in heavily Sunni areas. + Much of the Sunni-controlled territory is controlled by ISIS and nobody wants to live under ISIS
FACT: 1,925 Syrian refugees processed in US in 2015 = Data by Refugee Processing Center with 1,275 people placed in GOP states and 650 in Democratic governors states = Nearly twice as many states have Republican governors (31 states GOP Versus 18 Democratic) + GOP States average 41 Syrian refugees Versus 36 in DEM states = Based on family ties + Jobs availability = Examples are Michigan, Illinois, Pennsylvania and California, where there are small pockets of Syrian Americans.
ONE POSSIBLE SCENARIO: “Over the next two fiscal years, it is possible that the U.S. will accept 185,000 total refugees from around the world, but not just from Syria.
4.2 Million refugees TOTAL from Middle East
2.1 million refugees = Registered by UN-HCR in Egypt, Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon = 70% are women and children under 12 years old = Victims of terrorism.
850,000 Refugees fled to Europe = 62% men = NOT all from Syria
EVIL Cruz = No Refugees from Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen + Accept only Christians.
LIE = Trump claim government steers Syrian refugees to Republican state
FACT = Refugee Placement decisions are based on family ties, employment and other factors, none of which include political considerations.
