 “Afederal District Court judge in Maryland is considering whether he 
should order President Donald Trump to double the annual inflow of 
refugees up to 100,000 per year.
“Theplaintiffs’ request for 100,000 refugees each year was made by lawyers for the International Refugee Assistance Protect, HIAS Inc.,a so-called “VOLAG” which is paid by federal agencies to importrefugees, and by members of the Middle East Studies Association.
“Thelaw cited by Trump, Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Naturalization Act, gives the President near-complete power over who gets into the United States, according to a January 2017 report by Congress’ Congressional Research Service.
“Thelaw and the Supreme Court’s rulings prompted a judge in Boston,Mass., to reject another lawsuit the Massachusetts’ governmentagainst Trump’s E.O. “Therefore, in light of the“plenarycongressional power to make policies and rules for exclusion ofaliens,” … which pursuant to8 U.S.C. § 1182(f), has been delegated to the President, the Court concludes that the [federal]government’s reasons, as provided in the EO, are faciallylegitimate and bona fide,” the judge declared Feb. 3.
