During his eight years in office, Obama has taken many steps to cause instability in our nation, including his decision to expand the refugee resettlement program.
During 2016, Obama increased the amount of refugees who came to the U.S., accepting 15,479 Syrian refugees, which is a 606% increase from last year.
Out of the 15,479 people who were admitted to the U.S., 98% were muslim. In 2015, 98% of the 2,149 refugees who were allowed into the U.S. were Muslim as well. However, allowing more Syrian refugees to enter the U.S. is a position that most of the American public does not support.
It is no secret that Obama is an Islamic sympathizer. Last year, he criticized those who opposed the influx of refugees from countries that are hotbeds of terrorism.
“The people who are fleeing Syria are the most harmed by terrorism, they are the most vulnerable as a consequence of civil war and strife. When I hear folks say that, ‘Maybe we should just admit the Christians but not the Muslims,’ when I hear political leaders suggesting that there would be a religious test for which person who’s fleeing from a war-torn country is admitted, when some of those folks themselves come from families who benefitted from protection when they were fleeing political persecution, that’s shameful,” Obama said.
The U.S. is planning to resettle nearly 110,580 refugees in the new year.

In its last full month in office, the Obama administration has admitted 1,307 more Syrian refugees – pushing the 2016 calendar year total to 15,479, a 606.1 percent increase from the numbers resettled in the U.S. in 2015.
Of the 15,479 Syrian refugees admitted by the end of Thursday:
–15,302 (98.8 percent) are Muslims – 15,134 Sunnis, 29 Shi’a, and 139 other Muslims
–125 (0.8 percent) are Christians – 32 Catholics, 32 Orthodox, five Protestants, four Jehovah’s Witnesses, and 52 refugees described only as “Christian” in State Department Refugee Processing Center data
–43(0.27 percent) are Yazidis
–eight are “other” religion and one is described as having “no religion”
–3,904 (25.2 percent) are males between the ages of 14 and 50

–7,428 (47.9 percent) are children under 14, of whom 3,824 are boys and 3,604 are girls.
Last year’s intake of Syrian refugees was considerably smaller – 2,192 in total – although the religious ratio was similarly skewed: 2,149 Muslims (98 percent) and 31 Christians (1.4 percent).
