    According to the DHS Immigration Statistics Yearbook, in the first six tax years of the Obama administration, green cards were given to 832,014 citizens from most Muslim countries, from the fiscal years 2009-2014, the Senate Immigration Subcommittee and a report on national interest reveal.    

    In addition, the number of green cards in the report's last two fiscal years, for 2013 and 2014, has risen significantly. Records show that in fiscal 2013, 117,423 green cards were issued, compared to 148,810 in fiscal 2014, for an increase of almost 27 percent.

    Reports show that the United States has provided green cards to an average of 138,669 migrants from Muslim-majority countries each year in the first six fiscal years that President Barack has held office, and if the patterns continue, the United States would have provided green cards to at least 1,1 million migrants from those countries by the time Obama leaves office in January.      

    Muslims make up the fastest-growing group of immigrants according to census data released by the Center for Immigration Studies in September. In July 2014, the U.S. foreign-born population reached a record high of 42.4 million.
    According to Friday's study, the 832,014 green cards given to date do not include temporary non-immigrant visas for people coming in to work simply or for people overdue their periods of admission.
