Heartache: Obama brought in fewer refugees than Reagan or Bush

Musha Hadeen Published August 6, 2016

The internetz is financially incentivized to exploit low-information voters via manufacture crises.

The latest example:

“10,000”, “150”, “441”, “eight THOUSAND”.

Actually, Obama has admitted far fewer refugees than Ronald Reagan…

I know what you’re thinking

  • “But we’ve never taken in refugees from enemy territory before!!”

    Actually, the Soviet Union is widely regarded as our greatest post-WW2 threat, known for its vaunted spy and saboteur network. But George HW Bush took in ~190,583 refugees from Soviet territory during his 1-term presidency (an increase that began under Reagan).

  • “But we’ve never taken in so many refugees w/ no documentation!!”

    Actually, during the Reagan and Bush presidencies, the US took in ~400,000 “Vietnamese Boat People” w/ no way to verify their identities.

  • “But these Syrian refugees rape babies!!”

    Actually, there is a 99.99999999999999% chance you will die of heart disease or cancer. If you are wary of minorities, you are infinitely more likely to be the victim of natural-born African-American citizens.

  • “Tbh, you’re probably right, but I’m just like…”

    Actually, that is a perfectly normal human reaction.
