For John, BLUF: These are legit refugees, as opposed to immigrants, or even illegal immigrants. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Hill, by Reporter Jesus Rodriguez, 5 July 2018.
Here is the lede plus one:
The United States is resettling fewer refugees than the rest of the world combined according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of data from the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees (UNHCR).Who would have thought?
The study found that it is the first time the U.S has resettled fewer refugees than the combined total of all other nations since the 1980 U.S. Refugee Act, which allows the president to set caps on the number admitted.
"The rest of the world" includes the combination of Mexico and Germany and France and Italy. It includes all of Scandinavia and Eastern Europe. It includes China and India and South Africa. It includes Australia and New Zealand, as well as all of Southeast Asia. Japan and South Korea, Korea accepting refugees from the North. Turkey, which has a lot of refugees from the Middle East. And Greece and Spain. All of them.
