President Donald Trump is on track to hit refugee resettlement numbers even lower than in the years after the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks.

From Refugee Resettlement Watch:
Bush (so far) holds the record for low refugee admission years:  Bush admitted 27,070 in 2002 and 28,117 in 2003

We have now reached the six month mark of the first full fiscal year of the Trump presidency and Trump could easily break the Bush record set in 2002 of 27,070 refugee admissions for one year.

(See post here on the Bush record low years.)

At the six month mark, the Trump Administration operating well under a CEILING of 45,000 refugees, is at 10,548 admitted so far. Assuming that rate continues for the next six months, Trump could be at 21,000 (give or take a few) for the year, handily smashing President Bush's record.

Since the nine federal contractors are paid on a refugee per head basis for placing the refugees in your towns and cities, they surely are taking big hits to their budgets.
