Final Setback; Trump Administration Doubles the Refugees Rate into US

An email leaked into the public sent by The US State Department to the American private agencies around the world proved the failure of Trump plans on the issue. The email indicates the near doubling of the number of refugees in the coming months into the US.

According to the email sent by State Department spokeswoman Jennifer L. Smith, the travel and visa agencies will be allowed to bring refugees “unconstrained by the weekly quotas that were in place.” New York Times also reports that the weekly quotas will be 1500 which will be more than 6000 a month starting from June. The quota was 2500 for May and previous months which shows a %130 rise.

The news was published the same day Trump’s Travel Ban was ruled out once more this time by the 4th Circuit Appeals Court upholding blocks by a lower rank court. Trumps rule would ban the residents from six Muslim countries, Iran, Libya, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, and Yemen, from entering the US for 90 days and all refugees for 120 days.

The reason for ruling out the Trump Travel ban is announced its being religiously oriented. The court used the expressions and assertions of President Trump during his presidential campaign as proof:

The evidence in the record, viewed from the standpoint of the reasonable observer, creates a compelling case that (the executive order's) primary purpose is religious… Then-candidate Trump's campaign statements reveal that on numerous occasions, he expressed anti-Muslim sentiment, as well as his intent, if elected, to ban Muslims from the United States.  

The rise from 830 to 1500 in weekly refugees’ entrance into the US will be a big failure for Trump and his policies admitted by his administration in State Department email. The string of failures by Trump does not seem to be stopping or slowing down within and without the country.
