Here’s an interesting graph from Pew Research Global on refugee resettlements. Up until 2017, the United States had taken in more refugees than the rest of the world for decades. And when Pew says “the rest of the world,” they don’t mean other countries — they mean all the countries, combined. So it’s only in the past two years that the entire rest of the planet has taken in more refugees than the United States alone.

So the US was taking in more refugees than all of the rest of the world combined?

Looks like "all other countries" are finally doing their fair share!

Why was one country leading "all other countries" in refugee resettlement? We were doing more than our fair share.

This is great news. We are full. Time for other nations to pull their weight.

Lol – we are compared to all other countries combined?
Imagine making the point that an athletic team is having a poor year because it has less wins than all the other teams in the league.

What kind of nonsense is this? "The US no longer resettles as many immigrants as the rest of the world combined" is somehow noteworthy?
Better have the UN issue another travel warning, sounds like a real problem

… comparing one country to all often other countries in the world… how about a head to head, I bet we are STILL #1.

How many of them are climate refugees and who’s taking them in until a Democrat is elected?
