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.

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.
Cleveland Indians are Joining in the PC Radicalism by Discussing a Name Change
Even Major League Baseball is not exempt from political correctness.
The Washington Post reported that the Cleveland Indians are in the process of changing their name after the Washington Redskins announced their decision to review a potential name change before the NFL’s 2020 season.
“We are committed to making a positive impact in our community and embrace our responsibility to advance social justice and equality,” the Indians declared in a statement. “Our organization fully recognizes our team name is among the most visible ways in which we connect with the community. We have had ongoing discussions organizationally on these issues. The recent unrest in our community and our country has only underscored the need for us to keep improving as an organization on issues of social justice.”

According to a report from The Athletic, the Indians leadership is expecting to discuss the matter with Native American leaders, fans, players, alumni, and staff within the organization before making a final name change.
The Washington Post pointed out that “The club de-emphasized its “Chief Wahoo” logo in 2016 in favor of the red ‘Block C’ logo.”
“We do have empathy for those who take issue with it,” Indians owner Paul Dolan commented about the logo in 2016. “We have minimized the use of it, and we’ll continue to do what we think is appropriate.”
In the 2018 season, “Chief Wahoo” was eliminated and the team no longer uses the logo.
The degree of cultural radicalism America is going through in 2020 is off the charts.
The Left is moving at breakneck speed in its efforts to transform America in every possible way, while most of the Right stays asleep.
