Kaine Attacks Trump For Refugee Policy That Favors Christians; Report Shows 99% Of Syrian Refugees Have Been Muslim (Video)
Hypocrite Tim Kaine Attacks Trump On Refugee Policy
Democrats have been viciously attacking President Trump over his temporary immigration ban from seven countries that have strong ties to terrorism. The liberal Democrats have claimed that this is an attack on religious liberty and that President Trump is specifically targeting Muslims with this ban which over 70 Democrats supported in the past and Chuck Schumer said back in 2015 was needed.
On Wednesday the State Department released new findings that show that from September of 2015 through February 1, 2017, that 99% of Syrian refugees have been Muslim and less than 1% Christian. Did the Democrats stand in protest and encourage riots in airports when Obama refused to allow Christian refugees into the country? No.
From CNS News:
Although the CIA World Factbook says Christians make up 10 percent of the population of Syria and both houses of Congress have unanimously passed resolutions declaring that the Islamic State is committing genocide against Christians there, the Syrian refugees admitted to the United States have been approximately 99% Muslim and 0.9% Christian, according to data published by the U.S. State Department.
And this week, Sen. Tim Kaine, the former Democratic vice presidential candidate, accused President Donald Trump of trying to change the U.S. refugee policy to make it biased in favor of Christians.
Christians in the Middle-East have been executed in large numbers. We cannot allow this horror to continue!

The article goes on to state that two resolutions were passed in 2016, one from the House and Senate, that officially recognized that ISIS was committing genocide against Christians in Iraq and Syria. Despite this, the majority of refugees that have been allowed in the country since then have been overwhelmingly Muslim with few Christians.
From CNS News:
Since Rep. Fortenberry introduced his unanimously passed resolution declaring that the Islamic State was committing genocide against Christians and other religious minorities in Syria, the U.S. has admitted 17,790 Syrian refugees, according to the State Department.
Of these 17,790 refugees, 17,576 (or 98.8 percent) have been Muslim and 156 (or 0.88 percent) have been Christian.
When was the last time Democrats stood up for Christians or Jews?
