Culture Shift: Trump Administration Admitting Christian Refugees Over Other Cultures

President Trump campaigned on helping Christian refugees as they were being slaughtered in the Middle East. Results are showing he’s doing just that.

Here’s more from Breitbart.com:

Since Trump took office in January through June 30, nearly 9,600 refugees who are affiliated with the Christian faith have been resettled in the U.S., accounting for roughly 50 percent of all refugee resettlements, according to research by Pew.

Meanwhile, 7,250 Muslim refugees have been admitted in that same time period, or about 38 percent of all  admissions, breaking with former President Obama’s refugee resettlement norms where foreign Muslims were the largest religious group resettled in the country.

Beginning in February of this year, the share of Muslim refugees being admitted to the U.S. has increasingly gotten smaller, with the portion of Muslims dipping to just 29 percent of all refugee resettlements in May.

In 2005, 2006, and 2016, the number of Muslim refugees admitted to the U.S. far outweighed the number of Christians, with the vast majority coming from Somalia in the earlier years and from Syria last year.
