After President Donald Trump’s signed the executive order about the travel ban and freeze on Syrian refugee resettlement, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced refugees were still welcome in Canada. However, Trump’s executive order was shut down by the 9th Circuit. Otherwise, it would’ve unintentionally made Canada take the refugees – and have them pay for it.
President Trump promised he’ll do everything in his power to solve the refugee crisis. This also meant that he will come up with a solution which will prevent illegal immigrants from entering the US, but will also help the refugees fleeing from war zones.
Shortly after signing the executive order, Trump met with Saudi King Salman to discuss creating safe zones for refugees in Syria and Yemen. It would not only be simpler, but also a lot cheaper to resettle refugees in Syria and surrounding nations – $1,057 per refugee per year on average, verses over $12,000 to resettle them in the U.S.
Naturally, for the safe zones, much like the border wall, Trump is making it clear that America won’t be paying for it.
He pointed out that the Gulf states would pay for those safe zones, saying that “they have nothing but money.”
“We’ve allowed thousands and thousands of people into our country and there was no way to vet those people, there was no documentation there was no nothing. So, we’re going to keep our country safe,” Trump said.
He added that people would be able to “stay there and live safely in their cities” until Syria is stabilized, and repeated that “we want people that love us” in the United States.
Even with the current oil prices, Saudi Arabia still expects to garner 480 billion riyals ($180 billion) in oil revenue in 2017 (which is massive relative to their $646 billion economy), reports Allen B. West. Given how much our national debt has been exploded under Barack Obama, it would be a refreshing change to see the Middle East pay for their own problems.
