Amy Klobuchar Vows To Resettle 500 Percent More Refugees, None In Her Neighborhood

(Breitbart) – Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) is vowing to increase the number of refugees resettled in the United States by more than 500 percent if elected president, almost none of whom would likely be resettled in her neighborhood.

This year, President Trump lowered the annual refugee resettlement cap to its lowest ever at about 18,000 total admissions. This is merely a numerical limit and not a goal to be reached by the State Department.

Klobuchar has vowed to increase refugee resettlement back to Obama levels, admitting at least 110,000 refugees in the U.S. in her first year in office. As president, Klobuchar would “direct the State Department to restore the refugee admissions cap to at least its pre-Trump administration level,” according to her campaign.

Returning to Obama-level refugee admissions would be a more than 500 percent increase in refugee resettlement to the U.S. compared to Trump’s level of refugee resettlement.

Though thousands of American communities would be inundated with a refugee flow, Klobuchar’s neighborhood of Marcy-Holmes in Minneapolis, Minnesota, would likely have to absorb close to none of those refugees.

While Minneapolis has resettled thousands of refugees since 2009, almost none live in Marcy-Holmes, where Klobuchar owns a home with her husband.

Nearly 85 percent of all residents in Klobuchar’s neighborhood are native-born American citizens and of the less than ten percent of foreign-born residents, half arrived from China, India, Korea, Germany, Thailand, and Malaysia — countries from where only five refugees have been resettled in Minnesota in the last decade and none of whom have been resettled in Minneapolis much less Klobuchar’s neighborhood.

In 2015, at the height of the migrant crisis spurred by conflict in Syria and Libya, Klobuchar pushed an effort to bring 65,000 Syrian refugees to the U.S., the overwhelming majority of which would have undergone lax vetting procedures.

Overall, less than 30 of the 17,564 Syrian refugees resettled in the last two years of the Obama administration arrived in Minneapolis. None were resettled in Klobuchar’s neighborhood.

  1. Name one person that is promoting more illegals, immigrants, or refugees (whatever they are called) be brought into the U.S., that would advocate them being settled in their own neighborhood! I doubt you could find one. Just look at how Nancy Pelosi, the Hollywood screamers, & Liberals, so opposed to Trump building the boarder wall and wanting to let people in by the thousands, reacted when Trump suggested loading them up and delivering them to California! Everyone of them started screaming objections! We have too many homeless they said… well what about the rest of the country? They U.S. as a whole has too many homeless. The radicals don’t care about any other place…. “just as long as they are not dropped on us”…. except at election time… they would give them a meal for an illegal vote!!!!

  2. Surprise, surprise, surprise!
    All part of the democrat modus operandi aimed at brining in more government dependent folks to bolster the vote roles.
    And that means more kids we taxpayers are burdened with educating. How many new language specialists will be needed?

  3. Make her have to house a few of them in her own home. Would she be so quick to bring in all those refugees if she had to live with them? I don’t think we have to worry about her becoming President.
