Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is vowing to increase refugees to the United States by at least 700 percent.

Breitbart reports:

Warren’s immigration plan now includes drastically increasing legal immigration and refugee resettlement to provide businesses and corporations with a never-ending stream of cheaper foreign workers that America’s working and middle class will be forced to compete against.

The rate of refugees–under Warren’s plan–would increase to eight times the rate of President Trump’s refugee total last year, in which approximately 22,000 were welcomed into the country.

Warren writes, “At a time when 70 million are displaced around the world, President Trump has abused his authority to lower the refugee cap for the United States, admitting just over 22,000 refugees in total last year. I’ll welcome 125,000 refugees in my first year, and ramping up to at least 175,000 refugees per year by the end of my first term.”

The Breitbart report continues:

The U.S., thanks exclusively to Trump’s reforms, helped lower the total number of foreign refugees to about 22,000 admissions last year. This is a 76 percent decrease in foreign refugee resettlement from President Obama’s 2016 totals that reached almost 100,000 admissions. Trump also cut Obama’s surge of Syrian refugees arriving in the U.S. by more than 60 percent.

Warren would reverse that reduction of foreign refugees, adding another at least 154,000 refugees to American communities every year who would be forced to absorb nationals at the mandate of the federal government.
