Obama Admin Has Admitted 550 Syrian Refugees To U.S. Since Paris Terror Attacks, Just Two Are Christians
The Daily Obama Nation:
Five hundred and fifty Syrian refugees have been admitted into the United States since the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL) carried out terrorist attacks in Paris last November, and of those, two (0.3 percent) are Christians.
Over the past week, another 24 Syrian refugees have been admitted, including one male Orthodox Christian.
The religious breakdown of the 550 is 534 Sunni Muslims, three Shi’ites, ten others identified in State Department Refugee Processing Center data as simply “Moslems,” one Orthodox Christian, one Greek Orthodox Christian, and one refugee identified as “other religion.”
The two Christians are both male, as is the refugee identified as “other religion.” Of the 534 Sunnis, 275 (51.4 percent) are male, 259 (48.5 percent) female. Two of the three Shi’ites are male, as are seven of the ten “Moslems.”
The Obama administration plans to resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees in the U.S. during fiscal year 2016, which began on October 1, 2015.
