Trump administration slashes refugee program amid president's campaign attacks on immigrants

WASHINGTON The Trump administration will slash the number of refugees allowed to resettle in the United States to a new low next year permitting no more than 15,000 people fleeing war, violence and persecution across the globe to make a new home in America.

The State Department announced the cap late Wednesday and shortly after President Donald Trump attacked refugees during a campaign speech in Minnesota, home to a significant immigrant population from Somalia.

"Biden will turn Minnesota into a refugee camp ... overwhelming public resources, overcrowding schools, and inundating your hospitals," Trump said of his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, during the rally. "It's already there. It's a disgrace what they've done to your state."

The president also singled out Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Minnesota Democrat and refugee from Somalia who he has frequently targeted. He called her "crooked," among other attacks.


Another dog whistle.

1. Everyday there is another reason for me to loathe him more.

There will be a dark cloud over every one of us until Trump is out of office.
