77 Percent of refugees since judges order come from the seven countries
Stephen Dinan reports that during the week since federal Judge James L. Robart blocked President Donald J. Trump’s Jan. 27 Executive Order “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States,” the State Department has drastically increased the number of refugees entering the U.S. from Syria, Iraq and the other suspect countries identified pursuant to Section 217(a)(12) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. 1187(a)(12) impacted by the executive order.What the judge actually did was give the bad guys incentive to come now before his order can be reversed. This judge lacks a judicial temperament and also lacks the legal skills necessary for the job. His mistake could be costly for the country and a boon from Islamic terrorists.
A staggering 77 percent of the refugees let in since Judge James L. Robart’s Feb. 3 order have been from the seven suspect countries. Nearly a third are from Syria — the only country from which President Trump’s order banned refugees. Another 21 percent are from Iraq. During the two weeks before Judge Robart’s order, only 9 percent of refugees were from Syria and 6 percent were from Iraq.
