Obama Nearly Doubles Refugee Admissions

Since the beginning of fiscal year 2017, (October 1), the Obama administration has accepted 25,584 refugees into the United States. According to the State Department’s interactive website, that number has doubled from the same period of fiscal year 2016, (October 1 through December 20, 2015.)

This has been the most refugees accepted into the United States during Obama’s entire eight years of office. The next highest occurring influx is between October 1 and December 26 of 2012, for FY 2013.
