Federal Judge Rebukes President Obama for Taking More Muslim Refugees Than Christians from Syria

News Staff : Nov 2, 2016  CBN News

"It is well‐documented that refugees to the United States are not representative of that war‐torn area of the world. Perhaps 10 percent of the population of Syria is Christian, and yet less than one‐half of 1 percent of Syrian refugees admitted to the United States this year are Christian ...There has not been a good explanation for this perplexing discrepancy." -Judge Daniel Manion

"It is well‐documented that refugees to the United States are not representative of that war‐torn area of the world. Perhaps 10 percent of the population of Syria is Christian, and yet less than one‐half of 1 percent of Syrian refugees admitted to the United States this year are Christian," Judge Daniel Manion wrote.  

Manion took aim at Obama's policy in a 7th U.S. Court of Appeals opinion on a lawsuit filed by the Heartland Alliance's National Immigrant Justice Center. The group advocates for immigrants and those fleeing violence from their home countries.

"To date, there has not been a good explanation for this perplexing discrepancy," Manion said. (Photo via CBN News)

In 2016 alone, some 11,000 Syrian refugees have entered the United States, only 56 were Christians, according to data produced by the Refugee Processing Center.

The number of Syrian Christian refugees being allowed into the country are vastly disproportionate to Syria's Christian population. So far, between 500,000 and 1 million Christians have fled the violence or were murdered. 

Manion said the statistics "suggest that any refugee group is more or less welcome" but there is an obvious problem with the number of Christians being let in.
