Trump admin announces proposed refugee cap for FY2020


IT IS NOT A HUGE RALLY. WE’RE 40 POINTS UP. WE’RE DOWN 27,000 ON THE DOW. THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION JUST ANNOUNCED IT HAS, LET ME GET THIS RIGHT, THEY PROPOSED A REFUGEE CEILING FOR 2020. THE CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION SERVICE ACTING DIRECTOR KEN CUCCINELLI JOINS US NOW. WELCOME TO THE PROGRAM. THANKS FOR BEING HERE. WHAT IS THE CAP ON REFUGEES AND WHY ARE YOU PUTTING A CAP ON?>>CONGRESS PUT IN STATUTE THE PRESIDENT HAS TO SET A CEILING EVERY YEAR. IT IS THAT TIME OF YEAR. WE BEGUN OUR CONVERSATIONS WITH CONGRESS, PROPOSED CAP OF 18,000 REFUGEES TO BE RESETTLED HERE IN THE UNITED STATES. THAT IS DOWN FROM 30,000 THIS YEAR. THIS IS PART OF A MUCH BIGGER HUMANITARIAN PICTURE, STUART AND WE ARE PUTTING ENORMOUS APARTMENTS OF EFFORT INTO THE SOUTHERN BORDER BUT ALSO INTO ASYLUM WHICH IS VERY SIMILAR TO THE REFUGEES. YOU’RE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE PERSECUTED. PROTECTING THEM FROM THAT. SO IN THE ENTIRE HUMANITARIAN UMBRELLA, YOU HAVE ASYLUM, REFUGEE, CRIME VICTIMS, OTHER THINGS, TRAFFICKING VICTIMS. ALL TOGETHER AMERICA IS PROVIDING MORE SUPPORT IN SETTLING MORE PEOPLE IN THE HUMANITARIAN ARENA THAN ANY OTHER COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. ON A LONG-TERM BASIS. STUART: ARE YOU PLACING THESE LIMITS BECAUSE YOU FEEL THAT THE REFUGEE SYSTEM OR THE ASYLUM SYSTEM IS BEING GAMED?>>WELL NOT THE REFUGEE SYSTEM. THE ASYLUM SYSTEM IS CERTAINLY IN PART BEING GAMED BUT IT IS ALSO, STUART, A HUGE BACKLOG THAT MY AGENCY IS RESPONSIBLE FOR RESOLVING. OVER 335,000 CASES STILL OUTSTANDING. WE DON’T HAVE A BACKLOG ON THE REFUGEE SIDE. WE HAVE A BACKLOG ON THE ASYLUM SIDE OF HUMANITARIAN RESPONSIBILITIES. THE SAME PEOPLE ATTACK BOTH OF THOSE CASES OR CAN BE USED TO ATTACK BOTH THOSE WORK LOADS. THAT IS WHAT WE’RE GOING TO DO, WE’RE HIRING UP IN THE ASYLUM SPACE SO WE CAN DO MORE AND MORE RESOLVING OF THESE ASYLUM CASES BEEN BACKLOGGED REALLY TOO LONG. STUART: LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT. THE PRESIDENT CAN DO THIS WITHOUT GOING TO CONGRESS TO ASK IF HE CAN DO THIS?>>CONGRESS ASSIGNED THE TASK TO THE PRESIDENT ON AN ANNUAL BASIS. SO YESTERDAY WE TRANSMITTED TO CONGRESS THE DRAFT REPORT THAT’S INDICATED 18,000 PERSON CAP FOR REFUGEES. WE’RE GOING TO HAVE SOME CONGRESSIONAL COMMUNICATIONS HERE IN THE NEXT NUMBER OF DAYS AND WEEKS I’M SURE, BEFORE THAT’S FINALIZED. BUT THAT IS THE TARGET WE HAVE RIGHT NOW. OF COURSE THE ASYLUM SIDE IS MUCH BIGGER, MUCH BIGGER NUMBERS. WE’RE GETTING TENS AND TENS OF THOUSANDS OF CASES FILED AND PROCESSED. WE’LL GET A LOT MORE OF THEM DONE THIS YEAR AND NEXT YEAR BECAUSE WE’RE FINALLY GETTING CONTROLLED ON BORDER. THE SAME PEOPLE WHO WORK A REFUGEES AND AND AND A AISLE EAST WILL HAVE A LOT MORE CAPACITY TO GET ASYLUM CASES

  1. Stop the Globalist irresponsible refugee programs period in the USA, help the third world in their country Stop the non assimilating melting pot people , it has brought us the cancerous Islamic cult that hides their invasins in Religion and irresponsible refugee programs . We have so much the non assimilated Africans call themselves Black African American ?? No such country Black Africa America << just non assimilating Africans / This cult Islam doesn't allow for assimilation so they never will be Americans so who is the idiot that keeps giving out citizenship to people that never will be Americans and hate us ??

  2. Why is there no ceiling number on asylum? Aren't all people who are granted asylum protection considered "refugees"? Why do we continue accepting asylum claims after the "refugee" ceiling number has already been reached for the year?

  3. The cap should be zero. There should be no one coming into this country legal or illegal until we get rid of the illegals that are already here. As a taxpayer I'm tired of being overtaxed for everything under the sun especially my real estate tax. Once we get the freeloaders out and our tax money is no longer going to them we need to look at each and every individual tax put upon the American people.

  4. Taking refuge by definition is a temporary situation and these refugees should be required to return home once whatever they are taking refuge from has passed.

  5. U.S. has always been so generous and happy to welcome refugees, providing for all their living needs. But, it's wise to lower the cap for our national security. We granted asylum to a domestic enemy who's serving in our government (Omar D-MN). She's been a warning bell to the U.S. (It's sad for asylum seekers who would truly love this country.)

  6. NO REFUGEES! No ASYLUM!!!! It's all fake BS. They are scamming our system for freebies. Take care of Americans first. We have plenty of poor.

  7. Why not announce he has no plan to get immigration done before 2020 and announce he will "try" or "do his best" if the Saudis don't ask him to fight a pointless war. Like that movie GhettoPhysics, the game don't change in a pimp and hoe relationship, only the players do.

  8. Put out sign No Vacancy. Go to Chile, Argentina Brazil or Colombia. Middle Easterns go to Saudi Arabia, Iran, Egypt, UAE, Bahrain, Pakistan, China or Russia.

  9. It' this BEACH White-man sheriff that wants to Play Cowboys and Indians with the World !…Toy story movie…Cowboy and Aliens movie !…The BEACH White-woman want Harley Biker Junk to fight for her FREEDOM but the White-woman does NOT want to BREED with Harley Biker Junk !

  10. This is ridiculous. If you got to a restaurant, theater or an arena there is a sign that says the space only has a Specific amount for occupancy….well we’ve hit that amount of occupancy in America. Doors closed!

  11. You can only afford to help so many people. Some people have been legally waiting a long time already. I think they should be help first and that amount deducted from the totals decided on first. Because there are already too many illegals here that need to be removed and sent back to wait or that have already been denied and refuse to leave.

  12. Let's also mention they come here, reap the benefits without contributing while symotaniosly hating us by the majority. Most refugees for the most part do not respect us let alone like us. So why come?

  13. BEST NEWS I'VE HEARD ALL DAY ! ESPECIALLY IF THE CAP IS LESS THAN 5000 ! WE HAVE WAY TO MANY OF THEM TO ACCEPT ANYMORE! PLUS, MOST OF THEM HATE THE USA ! WHY HAVEN'T THE MAJORITY OF THESE "REFUGEES" BEEN RETURNED TO THEIR OWN COUNTRIES WHO ARE NO LONGER AT WAR? WE ALLOWED THEM HERE TO HELP THEM, NOT TO RAISE THEM FOREVER !

  14. we have American citizens that are homeless and in desperate need of help. until we take care of our own stop all immigration,asylum seekers and refugees from entering. as a matter of fact, no more foreign aid either. this country is in horrible shape. screw off, we are broke and full

  15. It's ABOUT TIME.We have turned from the country of freedoms and asylum ,to the DUMPING GROUND for any and all TRASH other countries want to get rid of.

  16. USA tax money should only be spend on USA citizens. Citizens deserve it first, no other way. Refuges should go to others. That's all

  17. A fence wont stop them from coming in. All cartels have tunnels and submarines. Plus immigrants are flying to Canada and coming down through that border. Guess that billion dollar fence did nothing. Chinas wall still looks better! Hahahha

  18. See what you people dont really understand these refugees want to see the almighty man that's talked about around the world, so many,many more are starting to come over and it's kinda sad but it's not up to my dollars that I break my back for and let them have free rides, that is not the way it works, that boarder has been in place for a long time why do you think they built it years ago for, fix and rebuild that wall and keep them out.

  19. How about this cap. ZERO refugees until we get the housing problem solved and seniors aren't trying to decide if they should buy food or medicine this month. Also, no refuges until we house every single Vet. MAGA!!! TRUMP 2020!!! Legalize weed!!!

  20. Just how is Ken any better than Kristen. He's still allowing g them in . 1 @ this time is 1 too much. I want zero 0 till we get rid of 25,000,000M we have.

  21. America's financial, drug, & military strategies create refugees & asylum seekers yet Trump is cutting the cap nearly in half? Still & yet, Americans have the audacity to proclaim their country "the greatest in the history of the world?" You people are delusional.

  22. From 2005 to 2014 refugees brought in 61 billion dollars more in revenue to the United States government than they cost the government. Racist trump and Steve minucian covered up this fact because it didn't fit their evil narrative

  23. Well that cap could be reached in a couple of days, if the government were counting all the refugees entering our country. They are easily counted when their children enroll in school or any of them request benefits from the government or enter the workforce. Nobody in the US is controlling our borders, and now it seems we have only Mexico and Canada to protect our county's sovereignty.

  24. We're coming for your heads Clintons, Obama's, bidens, pelosi, and the controller of them all… Deep state. You can't hide in the shadows anymore. If the justice system will not get you, the american people WILL.

  25. Why would he do that its not as if the liberals have been training illegal immigrants around the world to pretend to be refugees right……

  26. Make non-citizens leave every 3 to 6 months; just like most South American countries require non-citizens. It's only for a brief time frame…but that won't work, because they need a PASSPORT to travel to and from different countries. Does anyone else see how broken Congress has messed up our immigration system. Our tax dollars support illegal immigration. Sad

  27. How can a person be a refugee on land that was STOLEN from their ancestors?? Bonus Question: Who are the real illegals/refugees in the Americas??

  28. That is idiotic for the past at least 20 years are refugees have been 80,000 excepted into America. The fact that your capping it at 20 or 15,000 shows that over the past three years they’ve already cut it so much in half and half and half. This is unAmerican

  29. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that who ever believes in him will not perish but have everlasting life , for God did not send his son into the world to condemn it but that the world through him can be saved. Jesus said I am the way the truth and the life no one comes to the Father but by me. And that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God 👟❤️📖

  30. Democrats can donate their guns to refugees then ship them out, thus spreading democracy across the globe, win win!

  31. we in Canadistan l'ast year recieve 40 thousand plus illegal's from US refugee not to nention the thousand of lawfull immigrant's who wait in line and another few thousand of real refugees from war , so you are wrong to say the US accept more refugee than any country , in Canada we have ten time less people than the US so chec your number

  32. 0. Reciprocal. 0 Prove me wrong. Cap 0. Than there is options, of growth. We have two outcrop, unincorporated states, right? makes five charts to bear.??

  33. Good.
    Most nations, if you tried to become a citizen; require language fluency, at least a bachelor's degree, and steady employment for five years.
    America has forgotten one crucial aspect of immigration:
    ASSIMILATION

  34. The White House is apparently a domicile of Russian and troll hackers into our election system. Why don't they talk about that? Oh Trump did! Yep he sure did. Asking and begging and withholding money against a foreign country to inject poison into the American Republic system!. Yeah absolute treason at its best! America first huh? Yeah right?! Go study some history idiots!. High treason. Exposed!
