Donald Trump’s proposal to halt Muslim immigration to the United States has had some cheering and other damning him. One thing is clear: Americans are deeply divided on the issue.
So naturally the White House is ignoring the concerns of millions of Americans and continuing its importation of Syrian refugees.
Under UN law, these people aren’t even real “refugees” because they are already in safe countries like Jordan, but liberals only revere international law when it lines up with their ideology.
What’s really disturbing is that, while Christians and Yazidis are the ones being persecuted by ISIS, the majority of “refugees” to the US are Muslims.
As CNS reports:
Of the 9,902 before Monday’s arrivals, just 47 (0.47 percent) are Christians, according to State Department Refugee Processing Center data.
The vast majority of the Syrian refugees permitted to resettle in the United States are Sunni Muslims – 9,726 of the 9,902, or 98.2 percent. Another 20 are Shi’a Muslims, and a further 85 are identified in the data simply as Muslims.
“When individuals say we should have a religious test and that only Christians, proven Christians, should be admitted, that’s offensive and contrary to American values,” Obama said last fall.
So during World War II, should America have admitted “German” refugees en masse or specifically Jewish ones? Because Jews were being targeted in the former Soviet Union, the United States favored Jewish refugees back then, not just “Russians.”
It’s galling to be lectured about “American values” by Obama of all people.
