Warren Pledges to Take in at Least 700% More Refugees

In her national immigration plan released this week, White House hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren has pledged to import at least 700% more foreign refugees into the United States if she is elected president.

“At a time when 70 million are displaced around the world, President Trump has abused his authority to lower the refugee cap for the United States, admitting just over 22,000 refugees in total last year,” Warren wrote. “I’ll welcome 125,000 refugees in my first year, and ramping up to at least 175,000 refugees per year by the end of my first term.”

That amounts to an increase of 700%, or eight times the rate of Trump’s refugee total last year, a drastic shift from her economic patriotism agenda which she claimed would put the needs of American workers first.
