President Donald Trump said that victimize Christians will be given priority over other refugees requesting to enter the United States.
In his interview with the Christian Broadcasting Networking,Â Trump said-:
“impossible, or at least very tough, If you were a Muslim you could come in, but if you were a Christian, it was almost 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. And I thought it was very, very unfair. So we are going to help them.”
Many Christian groups criticized this step. President of World Relief, the humanitarian arm of the National Association of Evangelicals,Â Scott Arbeiter said-:
“We would resist that strongly, Some of the most vulnerable people in the world right now are Muslims. If we say no Muslim should be let in, we are denying the humanity and dignity of people made in the image of God.”
According to a study conducted by the libertarian Cato Institute, the United States registeredÂ 700,000 asylum-seekers and 3.25 million, refugees between 1975-2015. Out of which four asylum seekers and twenty refugees became a terrorist. The author of study Alex Nowrasteh wrote-:
“The chance of being murdered in a terrorist attack committed by an asylum-seeker was one in 2.73 billion a year, The chance of being murdered in a terrorist attack committed by a refugee is one in 3.64 billion a year.”
Interestingly in 2016, the number of MuslimÂ refugees accepted in the United States were 38,901 and in the same year, 37,521 ChristiansÂ were also accepted.
