Ann Corcoran writes in Refugee Resettlement Watch:
Obama has already said he will be setting the level for FY2017 in September at 100,000.
So the rest of the world would be responsible for 70,000 divided among many many countries. As always the US is expected to take in the lion’s share of the world’s refugees.
Here is the UN today in Geneva:
Geneva: The United Nations said Monday it will try to resettle a record 170,000 refugees urgently in need of a new home next year as it grapples with an unprecedented displacement crisis.
The projected resettlement figure from the UN refugee agency represents an increase of nearly 30,000 people compared with this year.
Most of the millions of refugees being created in the world today are a result of Islamic destabilization of Africa and the Middle East.
Make this an important issue in the fall election as Obama will be making his ‘determination’ in September. Pin Hillary down, as well as other candidates at all levels of government, when Obama announces his numbers for 2017.
And, besides the annual determination, which always comes due in September, remember Obama is leading a special pow-wow on refugees that month at the UN. He will be looking to get kudos for America’s generosity and “welcome.”
