U.S. Lawmakers Push To Defund The UN After Seeing STAGGERING Number Of Refugees Sent To U.S. In 2016
The United Nations has been doing a great job of angering a great deal of Americans with their most recent activity. Recently, the UN handed over some of the world's most holy Judeo-Christian sites to Muslims, which naturally upset many Israeli's as well as Americans. Now it would seem that they're at it again referring over half of the refugees to the United States. However, despite the UN's rogue attitude towards the United States and their interests the U.S. actually funds the UN more than any other country by far.
Statistics released by the Center for Immigration Studies in their Jan. 5th report indicate that the UNHCR, the UN's refugee agency, referred 62 percent of the refugees to the United States in 2015.
After the U.S. in highest number of refugee referrals was Canada who received a total of 22,886 referrals for the same time span as the U.S. However, this pales in comparison to the shocking amount that the U.S. received, which totaled 82,491, according to Conservative Tribune.
To see how the other countries compare in number of UN referrals Australia received 9,321 referrals, Norway had 3,806, and the United Kingdom 3,622.
Furthermore the number of refugees submitted for resettlement has just peaked with 2016 surpassing the previous record 134,044 refugees the UNHCR submitted in 2015 by almost 10,000.
This is in line with the trends that we've seen over the past few years, with the massive growth of refugee submissions by the UNHCR. Since 2012 the number of refugee submissions for resettlement has grown by a staggering 79 percent.

Now these nations don't have to accept all these referrals, but The Daily Caller reports that most of these referrals have been accepted.
91.8 percent of refugee referrals were accepted into their referral country in 2015, and of that percentage, 40 percent were approved for "legal and/or protection needs."
The U.S. not only has the highest number of referrals but they also have committed the most humanitarian aid to assist refugees, according to a statement made by UN Refugee Chief Filippo Grandi in October.
Now there is a lot of talk amongst lawmakers, in response to these actions by the UN, to defund the UN. Maybe if their largest financier pulled their funding then the UN might start to play ball.
