Many are aware of the Muslim refugee crisis plaguing Europe, but one might not be aware about what is happening right here in the United States.
According to a new report, the St. Cloud Hospital in Minnesota compiled the top boy and girl names for babies born in the Family Birthing Center at the St. Cloud Hospital in 2017.
According to the list, the Islamic name “Mohamed” is the third most popular baby name in 2017 in St. Cloud.
Here’s the top 10 list:
No. 1 – Henry
No. 2 – Liam
No. 3 – Mohamed
No. 4 – Jack
No. 5 – Nolan
No. 6 – William
No. 7 – Jackson
No. 8 – Logan
No. 9 – Wyatt
No. 10 – Grayson
The hospital has been publishing its top ten list for many years, but this is the first time the name of the Islamic prophet made the top five.
Given that a majority of Muslims who live in Minnesota are refugees from Somalia, many have come here with their families given that former President Barack Obama’s administration had lax liberal policies that allowed a plethora of immigrants to come to the U.S.
There are roughly 67,000 Somali’s in St. Cloud alone, which accounts for about 12 to 14 percent of the total population in the city.
And given that the Somali population has dramatically risen in recent years, it has placed an insurmountable burden on the state. In 2010, Minnesota paid roughly $400,000 in costs to fund translators fro the Muslim refugees.
By comparison, that state paid $1.7 million by 2017, illustrating how these refugees have not only placed a huge financial strangle on the state, but they are also quickly having the most popular baby name in the area.
It signifies that chain migration and lax policies under Obama for roughly eight years have allowed Muslim refugees to overtake the area and spread across the United States.
With Muslim refugees, who in turn promote Islamic cultures, coming into the U.S. we should be very thankful that President Donald Trump has drastically reduced the number of refugees we allow into the country.
