Evangelical Groups to Trump: Don't Deport Iraqi Christians

Tuesday, June 20, 2017 | Tag Cloud

Immigration officials knowingly released dozens of murderers back into the U.S. in 2013, according to Obama administration statistics detailing all of the criminal convictions of the more than 36,000 immigrants released from custody last year.

(Worthy News) - A group of evangelical Christian organizations and others have sent a letter to the Trump administration in protest of the potential deportation of Iraqi Christians from the United States.

Evangelical leaders, including Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission President Russell Moore, National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference President Samuel Rodriguez, and National Association for Evangelicals President Leith Anderson, signed a Monday letter from the Evangelical Immigration Table to Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.

"We write urgently and with grave concern that Christians will be removed from the United States to face potential persecution, and even death, in the Middle East," reads the letter.

"Recent reports ... indicate that a number of these Chaldean Christians face an immediate threat of deportation back to Iraq, a country where, as a result of their faith, they are likely to face oppression, persecution, and possibly even death at the hands of extremists." [ Source ]

  1. Trump seems to doing all he can. You can not discriminate according to our laws. If a country or region is a hotbed for anti American activity then those should not be allowed to enter our country. How can you tell who is who anyway? A Muslem extremist with the intent of carring out terrorist activities could just lie and say he is a Christian to gain access to our country.
