Only 10 Christian Refugees From Iraq and Syria Admitted to US in 2018; Evangelicals Respond


(Worthy News) - As the Trump administration has promised to help Christians and other religious minorities who faced genocide at the hands of the Islamic State, the U.S. government has resettled only 10 Christian refugees from Iraq and Syria since the beginning of 2018.

Female evangelical activists spoke out against the Trump administration's policies pertaining to the dramatic slowdown in refugee admissions during an Evangelical Immigration Table conference call Monday, two days before World Refugee Day Wednesday.

Kathryn Freeman, the director of public policy for the Texas Baptist Christian Life Commission, wasted no time in pointing out how the U.S. government has all but abandoned Middle East Christians looking to escape persecution in the Middle East. [ Source: Christian Post (Read More...) ]
