The U.S. is reaching record lows in terms of the number of refugees it’s admitting.
Ann Corcoran of Refugee Resettlement Watch highlighted that only 7,905 refugees have been admitted to the U.S. since October 1, 2019, which is the first day of the fiscal year 2020.
Last fall, the President imposed a ceiling on the number of refugees admitted to the U.S. that would only allow 18,000.
Corcoran noted that “as of yesterday [August 1, 2020], not even half of that number has arrived (with only two months to go). Of course a lot of that has to do with the worldwide travel restrictions due to the Chinese Virus.”
The immigration restriction advocate also put those numbers in perspective:
Obama admitted 9,577 refugees in one month, July 1-August 1, 2016 compared to Donald Trump’s 151 the same month 4 years later. As Obama was winding down his presidency he was pouring refugees (and other migrants) in at astronomical rates. That is 1,672 more in that one month than Trump has admitted in ten months!
According to Corcoran, there were only 151 migrants coming in during the month of July 2020.
At the top of this list there were countries such as Burma (36), Guatemala (21), and El Salvador (19).
Clearly, Trump has made an effort to address the issue of mass migration by bringing some sanity to the U.S.’s refugee system.
To fully address mass migration, there needs to be more progress on getting rid of birthright citizenship, chain migration, and ultimately making steps towards an immigration moratorium.
Trump is the only official that nominally has a clue about that, which is why immigration restrictionists should throw their support behind him. Simply put, no other officials — Republican or Democrat — come close.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
