30K Muslim Refugees Land on U.S. Soil in 2016 Alone
Donald Trump’s talk of “extreme vetting” of Muslim immigrants may give comfort to those worried about the dangers of Islamic terrorism and Hillary’s Clinton promise to increase the number of these migrants brought to U.S. soil.

The U.S. has allowed in 28,957 Muslim refugees so far this year alone, according to a Pew analysis of State Department data released Tuesday.
