99% Muslim, 43,000 Somali Refugees Settled in US Under Obama

Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner, November 28, 2016

The Obama administration resettled 8,858 Somali refugees in the United States last year, and nearly 43,000 during Obama’s eight years, a huge number that is now raising concerns after a Somali refugee led a one-man attack spree on the campus of Ohio State.

Like Syrian refugees, there is no adequate way to check the backgrounds of the Somalis, according to the head of the Center for Immigration Studies.

The Somali refugee numbers into the U.S. from the Department of Homeland Security and State:

— 2015, 8858.

— 2014, 9,000.

— 2013, 7,608.

— 2012, 4,911.

— 2011, 3,161.

— 2010, 4,884.

— 2009, 4,189.
