On Thursday, Breitbart.com reported that a leaked memo revealed that George Soros’s Open Society Foundation successfully lobbied Barack Obama to increase the number of refugees brought into the United States to 100,000 per year.

He also urged Obama to increase financing to overseas refugee efforts.

According to the report, the memo states (Emphasis added):

Over the course of several weeks, we, along with our colleagues in the Washington office led by Stephen Rickard, combined to undertake very active efforts to support a request to the Administration to provide a special allocation of an additional 100,000 refugee slots for Syrians and significantly expanded resources for international aid efforts. George Soros made such a request to President Obama in a recent letter, and 18 mayors across America are committed to welcoming refugees to their cities in numbers surpassing the administration’s proposal.

We used the extensive networks we have developed to help engage an array of actors, most of whom were sympathetic to the cause but had not focused on the issue. In part, our active role reflects our observation that the refugee advocacy community, while long-standing and sophisticated in the inner workings of refugee policy, does not have a strong advocacy capacity or deep grassroots ties. In the course of our work, we were able to generate engagement by a group of mayors through Emma Lazarus II Fund grantee Cities United for Immigration Action; the civil rights and immigrant rights community, through long-time grantee the Leadership Council for Civil and Human Rights; liberal and conservative former national security and state department officials with the help of grantee Human Rights First; and some conservative voices, such as evangelical Christians and Southern Baptists through grantee National Immigration Forum. In the face of this pressure, the Obama administration announced Sept. 20 that by 2017, it would raise to 100,000 the total number of refugees the U.S. takes worldwide each year.

But even that’s not enough for Soros.  The memo added: “While we applaud this development, it falls short of the proposed special allocation. We and allied advocates believe the U.S. can and should do more.”

Not even 100,000 migrants are enough for these people.

Earlier, we reported that Soros was Hillary Clinton’s puppet master, gave $650,000 to fund Black Lives Matter and tried to buy a favorable Supreme Court decision on Obama’s executive amnesty.

In short, Soros and his minions — including the man-child occupying the White House — are responsible for much, if not all, of the issues currently plaguing the Western world.

And if voters are crazy enough to elect Hillary Clinton to the White House, Soros may as well take up residence in the Lincoln Bedroom.
