Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) has revealed documents that present a clear picture as to the high number of Muslims being invited to live in America. Sessions is concerned about the implications on national security and questions why President Obama and Congress aren’t doing anything to lower the numbers.
According to Senator Sessions, 680,000 green cards were issued to immigrants from Muslim-majority countries from 2009 to 2013. Among the recipients were refugees. Senator Sessions warns these numbers will repeat themselves over the next five years unless something is done to prevent it from happening.
The data, which comes from the DHS’s Yearbook of Immigration Statistics, shows the top countries for green card recipients were Pakistan, Iraq, and Bangladesh. Over five years, 83,000 cards were issued to citizens of Pakistan and Iraq, and 75,000 to people from Bangladesh.
