Donald Trump blasted Hillary Clinton’s “radical” immigration position on Sunday. Rasmussen polling shows that only 4% of American women support Clinton’s Middle East migration proposal.
Indeed, last year, President Obama directed his administration to accept at least 10,000 Syrian refugees over the course of this fiscal year. However, Clinton said that Obama’s plan did not go nearly far enough— Clinton called for a 500% increase to Obama’s refugee resettlement operation.
“I think the United States has to do more,” Clinton told CBS last September. “I would like to see us move from what is a good start with 10,000 to 65,000.”
Clinton’s call for admitting 65,000 Syrian refugees is on top of the roughly 30,000 refugees and asylees the U.S. already admits from the Middle East each year. Adding in refugees from across the Muslim world, this means that under Clinton’s plan, the U.S. would admit at least 105,000 thousand refugees from the Muslim world annually, based on data from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
This does not even include the larger permanent resettlement program that occurs through green cards, bringing total annual migration from the Muslim world to 182,000 a year under Clinton’s proposal— of which roughly 140,000 would be from the Middle East specifically, according to DHS data.
Polling data shows that Americans oppose Clinton’s refugee resettlement plan by a margin so striking that it would seem to confirm an earlier declaration from Immigration Subcommittee Chairman Sen. Jeff Sessions that “Hillary Clinton has embraced a radical and extreme open borders agenda that, properly exposed, will make her un-electable.”
