Oh, this HAS to be at least slightly conspiratorial.
Are Republican States being purposefully targeted by Obama in retaliation for Trump’s election victory? Think “Game of Thrones“!
The evidence is certainly mounting in the affirmative. In a recent data release of the numbers of refugees “resettled” in the US between October 1st and December 29th of this past year, the top five States to receive the greatest number of refugees per 100K people all remained red during this election cycle.
Nebraska, a red state, voted for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election by a 60 percent to 34 percent margin. [Refugees Relocated – 502]…
North Dakota [Refugees Relocated – 164]
Kentucky [Refugees Relocated – 874]
Arizona [Refugees Relocated – 1350]
Idaho [Refugees Relocated – 320]
Additionally, it appears that many of those States that have been and remained “true blue” to the Democrats received very little (if not any) of the relocated refugees. Vice President Joe Biden’s state of Delaware was conspicuously spared any intrusion by refugees, as Breitbart explains:
“Delaware, the state Vice President Joe Biden represented in the United States Senate for forty years, received no refugees at all during this period. In fact, Delaware did not resettle a single refugee in FY 2016. In the fourteen full fiscal years since 2003, the federal government has resettled only 130 refugees in the state.”
It also seems that President Obama created a “safe space” for himself and his family from refugees as well:
“Hawaii, President Obama’s home state before he moved to Illinois, resettled only three refugees during the first three months of FY 2017, a per capita rate of 0.2 per 100,000 residents, well below the national average.
Illinois, which President Obama represented in the United States Senate prior to his election as president in 2008, resettled only 6.2 refugees per 100,000 residents during the first three months of FY 2017, a per capita rate below the national average.”
And as can be expected, lawmakers made sure that they and their families were completely shielded from the effects of resettlement while they served in Washington, DC:
“Only two refugees were resettled in the District of Columbia, which Hillary Clinton won by a 92 percent to 4 percent margin, during this period, a per capita rate of 0.3 refugees per 100,000 residents, well below the national average.”
As you can see, the Democrats covered all their bases. What is not entirely clear about this refugee shuffling is whether or not these foreign-born displaced will be able to be retroactively vetted by the incoming Trump Administration, considering that intelligence agencies in this country are hard-pressed with illegal immigration and its ramifications on our national security.
What is clear, however, is that this move by the Obama Administration was outright vengeance for the total repudiation of the president’s agenda by the American people. It is not only bald-faced, but a dangerous (and possibly fatal) “game of thrones”.
