Iran has yet to learn about Trump's promises, as the entire Iranian parliament chants Death to America. Here, even the CNN reporter Jason K. Morrell reports Members of Iran's parliament chants "Death to America".
Meanwhile, Islamic organizations say they are “thrilled” about nearly 40 state governors, including 17 Republicans, approving more refugee resettlement for their states thus far. For the fiscal year 2020, President Donald Trump will continue cutting refugee admissions by reducing former President Barack Obama’s refugee inflow by at least 80 percent.
This reduction would mean a maximum of 18,000 refugees can be resettled in the U.S. between October 1, 2019, and September 30, 2020. This is merely a numerical limit and not a goal that the federal officials are supposed to reach.
Coupled with the refugee reduction, Trump signed an executive order that gives localities, counties and states veto power over the resettlement of refugees in their communities. After Republican Gov. Larry Hogan announced that he would accept refugees in the state of Maryland, the Islamic Circle of North America Relief USA and the Council on American-Islamic Relations applauded the decision, saying in statements:
“They are a great asset to Baltimore and to Maryland,” said Ibrahim Abusway, community development of Islamic Circle of North America Relief USA. We are thrilled with this decision,” said Zainab Chaudry, director of CAIR Maryland outreach.
Before we get into this here are the 17 traitor Republican governors across America allowing for more refugees in their states. If your governor is on this list, I strongly urge you to reach out to your state elected officials and lodge your complaints.
Mike DeWine of Ohio
Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas
Kim Reynolds of Iowa
Charlie Baker of Massachusetts
Gary Herbert of Utah
Doug Burgum of North Dakota
Chris Sununu of New Hampshire
Doug Ducey of Arizona

Swing state Democrat governors like Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania, Tony Evers of Wisconsin, and Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan — all states that voted for Trump in the 2016 presidential election — have approved more refugees. Similarly, a handful of red-state Democrat governors have signed off on more refugee resettlement, including:
Steve Bullock of Montana
Laura Kelly of Kansas
John Bel Edwards of Louisiana
Roy Cooper of North Carolina
Andy Beshear of Kentucky
Another 14 Democrat governors of blue states, such as Gavin Newsom of California and Ned Lamont of Connecticut, have asked the federal government to resettle more refugees in their states.
It is clear that the refugee resettlement issue is a bipartisan issue among our elected leaders. We have a major problem unfolding across the United States where even the Republican governors have now become a National Security threat, as all 17 of these governors are going to allow more refugees into their state.
To make this matter worse is that Islamic groups like CAIR are "thrilled" about the decision from these 17 Republican governors allowing more refugees into their states. You now know why we must do our homework before electing officials to powerful government positions, as 17 Republican governors are allowing more refugees into their states with Islamic groups like CAIR happy about the decision.
For months, organizations with ties to billionaire George Soros have carried out a pressure campaign on Republican governors, who have readily caved, to ask that refugees continue being resettled. Likewise, in states like Iowa and North Dakota, the big business lobby and donors have continuously claimed they need more refugees to fill jobs.
Refugee contractors have a vested interest in making sure as many refugees are resettled across the U.S. as possible because their annual federally-funded budgets are contingent on the number of refugees they resettle. Those refugee contractors include:
Church World Service, Ethiopian Community Development Council, Episcopal Migration Ministries, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, International Rescue Committee, U.S.
Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, and World Relief Corporation.
Refugee resettlement costs American taxpayers nearly $9 billion every five years, according to the latest research. Over the course of five years, an estimated 16 percent of all refugees admitted will need housing assistance paid for by taxpayers.
