Default Syrian refugees admitted to U.S. spike

(CNN) The number of Syrian refugees admitted to the United States increased dramatically in May and early June, marking a significant surge in the pace of resettlement for a program that has become a lightning rod for critics of the Obama administration.

In fact, more Syrian refugees have arrived in the U.S. over the last five weeks than in the previous seven months, according to State Department data. Since May 1, 2,019 Syrian refugees have been admitted to the U.S., while only 1,736 were taken in over the first seven months of the fiscal year.

But critics of the resettlement program -- including Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump -- worry there's potential for ISIS or other terrorist groups to exploit refugee flows to reach the West.

Just last month, Trump warned in a podcast interview that a 9/11-like attack could occur if refugee resettlement continues.

"Our country has enough difficulty right now without letting the Syrians pour in," he said.

Looks like Obama is bound and determined to get as many radical Muslims into the country as he can before he leaves office.
We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.
