Trump favors Christian refugees over Muslims, 50%-38%, says State data

Written by 

Facing increasing levels of religious violence overseas, Christians have been trying to seek safety inside the United States for years and now the Trump administration is favoring them over Muslims, according to State Department data.

In the past five months, the shift has been dramatic. In February, 50 percent of refugees to the United States were Muslim. The latest data for June showed a drop to 31 percent.

At the same time, the percentage of Christian refugees into the U.S. went from 41 percent to 57 percent.

An analysis of State reports by the Pew Research Center, said "This stands in contrast to fiscal 2016, when a record number of Muslim refugees entered the U.S. and Muslims made up a higher share of admitted refugees than Christians (46 percent vs. 44 percent, respectively)."

Pew added, "From Donald Trump's first full day in office on Jan. 21 through June 30, 9,598 Christian refugees arrived in the U.S., compared with 7,250 Muslim refugees. Christians made up 50 percent of all refugee arrivals in this period, compared with 38 percent who are Muslim."

Given our heritage, the USA was designed to attract Christians. They will honor our laws and Constitutional Republic.

Sharia is incompatible and those that support it are incompatible as well. If they are Sharia compliant, they should not be immigrated here under any permanent conditions.

It should be 100% Christians to 0% for Muslims. Muslims will not assimilate.

100% correct!

IF Christians are only being favored by 50% over muzzies, it needs to be changed to favoring Christians by 100%. America is a Christian nation. Send the muzzies home.

I'm trying to remember, when was the last time a Christian strapped a bomb on a family member and blew up a street full of innocent people in the name of Jesus....?

Never by definition. If someone did they are not a disciple of Jesus Christ.
