A record number of Syrians have been allowed to come to the United States because of the refugee crisis, but the people we are letting in are not the ones that Obama said would be welcome.
So far this month, 499 refugees from Syria are now living in America. Of the 499, all but four declare themselves Sunni Muslims. Ironically Sunni Muslims are killing anyone who leaves Fallujah in Iraq right now.
Of the four who are not Sunni, the remainder say they are simply “Muslim”.
Of the 2,235 Syrian refugees, the United States has only let in ten Christians. That is less than a half of a percent. Christians once made up 10% of the Syrian population before the civil war.
Obama said that most of the refugees would be women and children, but they are not releasing the stats to back it up. The complete demographics have not been released.
The record so far this month is the start of a new trend. The number of refugees in March was the highest admitted in the US until April. Then in April was saw the highest numbers in refugees. And now a new record in May.
Will this trend continue? Probably.
Believe it or not, the Obama Administration is under fire from pro-refugee watchdog groups for moving too slow and not bringing in enough refugees.
It is clear that something has to be done to help the innocents in Syria, but will us letting in refugees actually make us less safe? Let us know in the comments below.
