WWW.TRUNEWS.COM Very few Syrian Christian refugees being admitted to U.S. Syrian refugees coming to the U.S. has increased since the November terror attack in Paris, but only .3 percent are Christian. Of 573 migrants admitted, only 2 are Christians and the rest are Muslim, according to the State Department Refugee Processing Center. Among the Muslims, 560 are Sunnis, three are Shiite and 10 others are identified only as being Muslim. When the civil war began five years ago, Christians accounted for 10 percent of the Syrian population, according to CNS news, but they are not let in proportionately. Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton said the referral system that is responsible for who is admitted “unintentionally discriminates” against Christians. GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz has vocalized support for having the U.S. take in Christian refugees, and letting Muslim countries take in Muslim refugees. Most of the people coming into the U.S. have been resettled into small towns in conservative areas. Last week TRUNEWS reported on a large number in Amarillo, Texas. Big cities like Washington, D.C. are not seeing the influx. Last week, Secretary of State John Kerry promised $1 billion in aid for the refugees. About 40,000 Syrians have fled for the border in the past few days, as the fighting worsens in Aleppo, according for the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. A donors’ conference was held in London, in response to the pause in the peace talks. READ MORE HERE: https://www.trunews.com/?p=69154
