Majority of Recent Refugee Arrivals Are From Terror-Prone Countries

According to CNS News, ever since U.S. District Judge James Robart halted President Trump’s executive order, 60% of refugee arrivals have come from the five different “terror-prone” countries stated in the order.

Judge Robart blocked the executive order on Feb. 3.  Since then, 1,549 refugees (60.1 percent) that have entered the U.S. are from the following countries.

  • 532 – Syria
  • 472 – Iraq
  • 363 – Somalia
  • 117 – Iran
  • 65 – Sudan

According to State Department Refugee Processing Center data, of the 2,576 refugees that have arrived since Feb. 3, 1,424 are Muslims.

  •  817 – Sunnis
  • 132 – Shi’ites
  • 475 – self-identified simply as Muslims

This means 55.3 percent of all recent refugees admitted are Muslim.

The original “countries of concern” list was created by the Obama administration and, essentially, identified the countries with the highest terrorism threat to the U.S. and other nations. Trump used that list to create an executive order which temporarily banned immigrants and refugees from the seven countries in hopes of preventing “foreign terrorist entry into the United States.” The order prohibited refugees from Syria, indefinitely.

The remaining refugees that have entered the country since Feb. 3 are the following:

  • Afghanistan – 25
  • Bangladesh – 2
  • Bhutan – 96
  • Burma – 47
  • Burundi – 2
  • The Central African Republic – 12
  • China – 1
  • Cuba – 17
  • Democratic Republic of Congo – 347
  • El Salvador – 23
  • Eritrea – 48
  • Ethiopia – 15
  • Honduras – 3
  • Moldova – 10
  • Pakistan – 24
  • “Palestine” – 2
  • South Sudan – 6
  • Russia – 22
  • Tanzania – 1
  • Uganda – 4
  • Ukraine – 213
  • Vietnam – 8

No refugees have arrived from Yemen or Libya.
