Muslim Ban? Tillerson’s State Department STILL Discriminates Against Syrian Christian Refugees

Muslim Ban? Tillerson’s State Department STILL Discriminates Against Syrian Christian Refugees, by Patrick Poole.

Since President Trump’s inauguration on January 20, the State Department under Rex Tillerson has admitted only 28 Syrian Christian refugees, representing only 1.4 percent of the total. About 10 percent of Syrians are Christian.

This continues a policy of open anti-Christian discrimination established by the Obama administration — which Trump had promised to end.

The State Department’s Refugee Processing Center shows that, of the Syrian refugees admitted during the Trump administration, 1,932 Muslims and only 37 non-Muslims have been admitted. …

During the entire Obama administration — as attacks of Egypt’s Coptic Christian community skyrocketed — only 22 Coptic Christians were admitted as refugees. In 2013 and 2014 as the Muslim Brotherhood waged a terror campaign targeting Christians in Egypt, the Obama administration didn’t admit a single Egyptian Christian.

It’s as though the swamp is going out of its way to make sure the third world refugees they import are also Islamic, imbued in an immutable seventh century Arabic culture. Insane.

Obviously providing refuge from persecution has little to do with it. The Jews were tossed out of Arab-Muslim lands around 1948; now it’s the Christians.
