Sessions Says Obama’s 200,000 Refugee Plan is Fiscally Unsound

In response to the announcement that the United States would yet again take in more immigrants than any other nation, 200,000 in the next two years, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-IL), strongly reacted with these words.

The U.S. has already taken in four times more immigrants than any other nation on Earth. Our foreign-born population share is set to break every known historical record,”

“All of the nearly 200,000 refugees the Administration is planning to bring over the next two years would be entitled to these same benefits the moment they arrive. Since we are running huge deficits, every penny of these billions in costs will have to be borrowed and added to the debt,” Sessions said, noting that the refugees would be admitted on top of the 1 million green cards the U.S. hands out annually.

Since September 11, 2001, the United States has resettled 1.5 million immigrants from Muslim nations.  The amount of entitlements is exorbitant.  “Ninety percent receive on food stamps, and seventy percent are receiving free healthcare and cash welfare”, according to Breitbart.

Sessions also believes that the Middle East countries should be leading the way in taking in the refugees fleeing Syria.  Their assimilation and ease of resettlement would be vastly superior to bringing them to the U.S. where two cultures and world views would collide.
