United States fact of the day

Nationals of Burma, Bhutan, and Iraq accounted for more than 70 percent of refugee arrivals to the United States in 2012.

In recent years, Burmese have made up the largest share of refugees resettled in the United States.

The link is here, in 2012 more than 87,000 people were granted asylum status in the United States, here is further data on the process and who exactly is let in.

And we cannot manage 20,000 plus Syrians today?  I do not see that we are having major problems from those earlier arrivals and of course many of them, including some of the Burmese, are Muslims.
