Refugee Resettlement Has Doubled Since Court Ruling

While the Trump adminstration grapples with legal challenges to it's 120-day moratorium on refugees, the U.S. State Department has more than doubled the refugee inflow from those deemed terror-prone countries.

Roughly 1,100 refugees have entered the U.S. since a judge blocked the president's executive order, 77-percent are from the countries outlined in it.  Two-thirds of those identify as being Muslim. 

In a statement to the Washington Times, the State Department insists the increase is the result of “rescheduling those whose travel had been suspended” by President Trump. 

Those handling refugee resettlement here in Texas were not available for an interview, but its widely known the Lone Star State takes in about 7,000 refugees each year with most of them landing here in Houston.cour
