Trump to give persecuted Christians priority refugee status

As of September, 2016, 10,801 Syrian refugees were admitted to the U.S., of whom only 56 were Christian. Christians in the caliphate areas of Iraq and Syria were specifically targeted for murder, rape and extortion by ISIS but the Obama regime turned a blind eye to their suffering. That’s about to change.

(Washington Examiner)  -  Persecuted Christians seeking asylum in the United States will be given priority when they apply for refugee status, President Trump said Thursday.
“We are going to help them. They’ve been horribly treated,” Trump told the Christian Broadcasting Network in an interview set to air Sunday.
“Do you know if you were a Christian in Syria it was impossible, and the reason that was so unfair — everybody was persecuted in all fairness — but they were chopping off the heads of everybody, but more so the Christians,” he told CBN’s David Brody.
Upon being asked if he sees persecuted Christians “as kind of a priority” when it comes to granting non-citizens refugee status, Trump told Brady: “Yes.”
Trump was expected to sign an executive order Friday afternoon that would temporarily shut the door to most U.S.-bound immigrants from Muslim countries and suspend the Syrian refugee program.
“The secretaries of state and homeland security, as appropriate, shall cease refugee processing of and the admittance of nationals of Syria as refugees until such time as I have determined that sufficient changes have been made to the [U.S. Refugee Admittance Program] to ensure its alignment with the national interest,” read a draft of the order obtained by the Washington Examiner earlier this week.
