TRUMP SAYS SYRIAN CHRISTIAN REFUGEES WILL BE GIVEN PRIORITY FOR ENTERING U.S.
Christian Refugees Will Be Given Priority
After years of being intentionally ignored and left out to be slaughtered by ISIS by Barack Obama, Syrian Christians can breathe a sigh of relief. President Donald Trump is going to give them priority status for coming to the United States.
The move is likely to receive high praise from the majority of Americans after Obama prioritized Syrian Muslims coming into the U.S. and seeing the results of letting in a group of people that hold belief systems that are incompatible with American values.
President Donald Trump said on Friday that Syrian Christians will be given priority when it comes to applying for refugee status in the United States.
“If you were a Muslim you could come in, but if you were a Christian, it was almost impossible and the reason that was so unfair, everybody was persecuted in all fairness, but they were chopping off the heads of everybody but more so the Christians,” Trump said in an excerpt of an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network.
Pew Research Center said last October 38,901 Muslim refugees entered the United States in fiscal year 2016 from all countries – almost the same number of Christian refugees, 37,521.
