680,000 Green Cards Given to Immigrants of Muslim Countries



The United States has issued 680,000 green cards to immigrants of Muslim-majority countries, according to data from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

The green cards were issued within the last five years and will be reissued again in five years. Among the people who received green cards are individuals who entered the United States as refugees.

The data, released by Senator

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)


, adds that these, “refugees have instant access to federal welfare and entitlements, along with local benefits and education services; these costs are not offset.”The release from Sessions notes that “Assuming no change in visa policy, the U.S. can expect to give green cards to another 680,000 more migrants from these countries over the next five years… A green card entitles recipients to access federal benefits, lifetime residency, work authorization, and a direct route to becoming a U.S. citizen.”

The number, 680,000 isn’t “an estimate of total migration, as it does not include temporary migrants who return home, nor is it an estimate of population change, as it does not include births or deaths, among other considerations.”
