We know that already, but as month number 5 closed last night (FY18 began on Oct. 1, 2017), we have more evidence that the refugee industry must be in complete financial chaos.
As you know the whole admissions industry is based on a ponzi-scheme of sorts where nine federal contractors*** which monopolize all resettlement in the US are paid by the federal government on a per refugee head basis.
Fewer refugees=less money in their coffers.
And, as I said here, the contractors got fat and lazy on the federal dole and have not raised sufficient funds to avoid layoffs and office closures.
I suspect too that there must be internal conflicts within the fake non-profit organizations*** and between them as they are bidding for fewer and fewer bodies.
8,583 refugees have been admitted in 5 months.
That means that, if the present rate continues, arrivals will be around 20,500 for the full year. And, that would mean that Donald Trump will beat the George Bush record lows:
In the immediate wake of 9/11, Bush admitted 27,070 in 2002 and 28,117 in 2003.
Here is a map from the Refugee Processing Center showing where the 8,583 refugees have been placed so far this fiscal year.
I know the numbers are hard to read, nothing I can do about it.
Here are the top ten ‘welcoming’ states in descending order: OH, TX, WA, NY, CA, PA, NC, AZ, GA, IL.
For the umpteenth time, if Congress doesn’t reform the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program in its present window of opportunity, you can expect the numbers to explode again as soon as Trump is no longer in the White House (unless someone like Trump is elected next time).

These are the private contractors that are paid by the head to place refugees in your towns and cities.
The number in parenthesis is the percentage of their income paid by you (the taxpayer) to place the refugees and get them signed up for their services (aka welfare)! From most recent accounting, here.
