According to data released by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the United States remains in first place for refugee resettlement.
The refugee agency has been urging for more resettlement spots in line with Global Compact on Refugees, which advocates for increasing refugee resettlement opportunities.
CIS offered an overview of 2019 resettlement activities in the images below:

In 2019, the United State government resettled more refugees than any other country on the planet. UNHCR press release from early February stated, “The largest number of UNHCR-facilitated resettlement departures last year were to the United States, followed by Canada, the United Kingdom, Sweden and Germany.”
The UN’s Global Compact on Refugees, which was established in 2018, pushes for increases of resettlement admissions. Additionally, it “pushes for faster and more flexible means of resettlement processing” and “encourages other pathways for admission as ‘complements’ to resettlement” via private sponsorship programs (such as student scholarships, employment opportunities, etc.). Thanks to President Donald Trump’s strong nationalist instincts, the U.S. government did not to endorse this refugee compact. However, countries like Canada did.
Per the UNHCR’s recent Factsheet and Resettlement Data Finder, 21,159 refugees were resettled in the U.S. The official U.S. government Refugee Processing Center portal found that the number of refugees resettled in the U.S. in the calendar year of 2019 (January 1-December 31, 2019) was 25,782. For the fiscal year 2019 (October 1, 2018 – September 30, 2019), it was 30,000.
Although refugee resettlement pales in comparison to migrant inflows via legal and illegal immigration, this is another facet of mass migration that should not be ignored. After all, various failed Democrat candidates like former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg have called for refugee resettlement levels in the six figures range.
Beyond economic costs, mass migration, regardless of how it occurs, can potentially undermine American civil liberties.
Immigrant voting trends indicate strong support for Democrats that has not waned in the last 50 years.
Immigration is no casual public policy matter and could put America and the rest of the West on the ropes.
Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016
Coulter tells it like it is.
Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.
Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.
Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.
As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.
Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.
She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.
also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”
She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.
The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.
Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
