Federal Judge: “Where are the Christians”?
Iraqi refugees that fled violence in Mosul and internally displaced Syrians who fled Islamic State controlled areas in Deir al-Zor,…
A federal judge has rebuked the Obama administration over the lack of Syrian Christians being admitted from the war-zone.

Judge Daniel Manion addressed the refugee issue and took aim at the Obama administration over how few Christians had been admitted to the U.S. The Judge called it a “perplexing discrepancy” that only 56 of 11,000 Syrian refugees to the U.S. in fiscal 2016 were Christian. The rebuke came in a Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals opinion on a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by The Heartland Alliance’s National Immigrant Justice Center. A report from Fox News singled out the following quotes from Manion.

“It is well?documented that refugees to the United States are not representative of that war?torn area of the world. Perhaps 10 percent of the population of Syria is Christian, and yet less than one?half of one percent of Syrian refugees admitted to the United States this year are Christian,” he wrote.

“To date, there has not been a good explanation for this perplexing discrepancy,” Manion noted.
