Prez Obama keeps his refugee promise of 10,000 #HNNGov


The United States is on track to admit President Barack Obama’s goal of10,000 Syrian refugees by the end of the 2016 fiscal year, in spite of resistance from Republican politicians and virulent anti-refugee fearmongering from GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

About 8,000 Syrian refugees have been resettled in the U.S. since last October ― more than three-quarters of them women and children ― and the administration expects to admit at least 2,000 more by the end of September, when the 2016 fiscal year ends, officials announced on Friday.
There has been significant pushback against admitting Syrian refugees, especially from Republican politicians who argue they’re unvetted and potentially terrorists.
