Increased oversight by President Donald Trump’s officials has trimmed the immigration spike created by former President Barack Obama during 2016 and 2017, according to the Washington Post.
According to the Washington Post:
The number of people receiving visas to move permanently to the United States is on pace to drop 12 percent in President Trump’s first two years in office, according to a Washington Post analysis of State Department data. …
The shift in legal immigration is a reversal of the trend under President Barack Obama. During Obama’s time in office, immigrant visas increased by 33 percent, surging to 617,752 in fiscal 2016, the highest level in decades.
The Post noted that the legal immigration from Muslim countries is “on track to fall by nearly a third,” and it also cited criticism that the reduction “is really a Make America White Again agenda.”
