The nerve of Aussie’s suggesting that if the US reneged on the deal, this might strain relations with Australia. See our previous posts on the insane deal, here (posts dated 2016 and 2017). […]

How many refugees so far in FY2017? Daily average has dropped

I just checked the Wrapsnet data base and see that since I wrote last week the daily average of arriving refugees has dropped.

What will Rex Tillerson as Sec. of State do on refugees? (No idea!)

That is the question Daniel Horowitz asks at Conservative Review yesterday.  He suggests that silence on the subject doesn’t bode well for those of us who know that the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program must be scrapped as written.
