As Trump's Travel Bans Are Blocked, Federal Judge Looks To Double Refugee Capacity

The number of war refugees allowed into the United States every year may increase two-fold to 100,000 if a federal judge orders an expansion of the resettlement program, according to Breitbart News.

The website blasted the proposal, declaring that “any demand by the judge that the federal government airbus an extra 50,000 migrants — including many adherents of Islam’s sharia legal system — into American neighborhoods would be an unusual intervention into government roles normally left to the elected president and Congress.” The op-ed continued: “If actually implemented, the judge’s plan also would be extremely expensive for Americans because state and local communities subsidize each new immigrant with roughly $1,600 each per year for decades.”

The judge announced his intentions as part of his ruling on Wednesday that rejected Trump’s second executive order regarding refugees. The courts have blocked two presidential actions that sought to bar refugees and temporary ban travelers from certain Muslim-majority nations, which judges called a violation of religious liberty.

The first executive order, signed Jan. 27, was titled “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States.” The document authorized cutting in half the 100,000 refugees that the Obama administration vowed to accept annually. “I hereby proclaim that the entry of more than 50,000 refugees in fiscal year 2017 would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and thus suspend any such entry until such time as I determine that additional admissions would be in the national interest,” the order stated. The second executive action, issued March 6, carried the same title.

Breitbart News reported that the initial request for the 100,000-refugee level came from the International Refugee Assistance Protect, also known as HIAS Inc., which receives federal funding to resettle the foreigners in the United States. When a court blocked the second executive action, HIAS said in a written statement that the ruling “leaves the door open for further discussion of our challenges to the refugee ban, an opening we intend to pursue.”
