It’s no secret the refugee problem is rife with national security concerns. Obama’s plan to allow in nearly 10,000 Syrian refugees without any way to vet them should at least be a cause of concern – especially so considering one of the Paris attackers was accepted into Germany as a fake refugee.
Many proposed allowing only Christian refugees to eliminate the possibility of a terrorist slipping through the cracks.
But…the Obama administration appears to think the opposite strategy is appropriate.
To quote The Hill:
America is about to accept 9000 Syrian Muslims, refugees of the brutal war between the Assad regime and its Sunni opposition, which includes ISIS, Al Qaeda, and various other militias. That number is predicted to increase each year. There are no Christian refugees that will be admitted.
Why? Because the Department of State is adhering with all the rigidity of a Soviet era bureaucracy to the rule that only people at risk from massacres launched by the regime qualify for refugee status. The rapes of Christian women and the butchery of Christian children do not count. No matter how moved Americans were this Christmas season by the plight of their fellow Christ followers in Syria and Iraq, no matter how horrific the visuals of beheadings, enslavement, and mass murder, the Christians fleeing death do not engender the compassion of this president.
The numbers so far don’t look good. Since the Paris terror attacks, 237 Syrian refugees have entered the U.S. – only one of which is Christian, for a grand total of 0.4 percent. This is despite 10 percent of the Syrian population being Christian.
As Col. West wrote earlier today, there can be no doubt there is an assault on Christianity in this country – and it seems to extend to globally.
