Refugee Resettlement To Continue Being Funded Under Proposed Budget
Daily Caller ^ | May 1 2017 | Alex Pfeiffer

Posted on 05/02/2017 4:03:47 AM PDT by Whenifhow

The budget deal to keep the government funded through September agreed upon by congressional leaders would continue funding the refugee resettlement program.

An agreement on the omnibus budget was reached by leaders from both parties Sunday, as a government shutdown looms on Friday. The proposed spending agreement includes no money to construct the president’s border wall, and continues funding Planned Parenthood.

[….]

The bill would include a total of $3 billion towards migration and refugee assistance, which is roughly the same that was spent in Fiscal Year 2016. It would also include $50 million towards the emergency refugee and migration assistance fund, which is also the same amount spent in the previous fiscal year.

With President Trump’s executive orders temporarily blocking refugee resettlement held up in court, 12,397 refugees have been resettled during his presidency.***……..

The Obama administration set a goal in September of 110,000 refugees admitted in Fiscal Year 2017. A State Department official told The Daily Caller in early April that “this language represents a ceiling on refugee admissions – it is not a mandatory target.”

From Ann Corcoran - Trump can institute the 120-day moratorium, ...to assess security [issues] but it gets more difficult with approved funding.

Congress seeks to fund US Refugee Admissions Program as if Trump didn’t exist

The so-called budget deal being ironed-out to fund the government to the end of the year commits billions to the refugee program. You might think that Obama was back in the White House and that Donald Trump never campaigned on slowing the flow of refugees from countries that produce terrorists.

This is why I have been saying that Trump did not have to include changing the ceiling or language about a moratorium in the Executive Order. He has the power to stay anywhere under the ceiling! The Refugee Act of 1980 tells the President to set the ceiling in advance of the fiscal year, before October 1, and if he wants to raise the ceiling during the year he must inform Congress, but he does not have to reach the ceiling—few Presidents in recent times have reached the ceiling—or even inform Congress that he will be coming in under it!

[ ]

It isn’t too late for Trump to quietly institute the 120-day moratorium, as he originally planned, to assess whether our security screening is adequate. It gets much harder if the agencies are awash in money that they want to send out to government contractors! ***See my post here from a couple of days ago about Trump’s refugee admissions.

#nowallnobudget Has Trump left town? Not one word from the bully pulpit. Someone needs to send him some growaset fast, cause Paul Ryan owns him. Might as well put a leash on him and parade him around. All executive orders and sending military to die in Muslim civil wars... and no real leadership on his home soil. Yawn.. what an embarrassment.
Maybe nicki Haley could get it done.. she’s not doing too bad at the UN.

if two or three blocks get placed on top of each other to start a wall, the next president, President Camacho will just pull them over ina show of strength for n his jumpsuit while 399- year old David Gilmore plays tear down the wall. There will be tears.

Perhaps President Trump needs a different message from Deplorables. We've been keeping our concerns "in the family" on FR. Now, I'm wondering what tools Trump has for negotiation. Defunding Planned Parenthood, a tariff or a fine on money transferred to Mexico (Mexico pay for starting the wall), and cutting money for refugee resettlement should've been no-brainers. I don't understand why DACA isn't being walked back with an expiration date for application.

Too many swamp creatures are in the aquarium. The water has become too cloudy for clear vision. Soon it will be just more swamp water.

Trump has been rolled by the Republican leadership or Trump is a two-faced lying POS. WHICH IS IT?

Think back to the comment from Princess about refugees.

Btw..what is going on with the travel ban. Has it been appealed?

Time for big action instead of big talk. Trump had best start putting up.

This is NOT winning.

no wall => no wall and it remains that way.
