The Refugee Processing Center reported data on the number of Syrian refugees resettled in the United States by year from 2011-2018. Questions are being raised about how committed the U.S. really is to Syria's civilians judging by its refugee intake so far this year. 

 So far in 2018, the U.S. has only admitted 11 Syrian refugees as per the  State Department figures. During the end of Obama's presidency, 15,479 Syrian refugees were resettled. It was in 2016. It fells down to 3,024 in 2017. 

Trump capped annual U.S. refugee admissions to 45,000 on last September. Over 30 years, it was the lowest number requested by any president. The number of Syrian refugees resettled each year are:

2011 - 23
2012 - 41
2013 - 45
2014 - 249
2015 - 2,192
2016 - 15,479
2017 - 3,024
2018 - 11
