The Obama administration’s refugee resettlement program took off in 2016 with 15,479 Syrian refugees having been admitted to the U.S, a 606% increase from the resettlement numbers of last year.

In his last month of the presidency alone, Obama admitted 1,307 more Syrian refugees to the states.

Overall, 98.8% of the refugees the president has welcomed into the country are Muslim.

  • 43(0.27 percent) are Yazidis
  • eight are “other” religion and one is described as having “no religion”
  • 3,904 (25.2 percent) are males between the ages of 14 and 50
  • 3,521 (22.7 percent) are females aged 14-50
