President Trump Says Persecuted Christians Will Be Given Priority As Refugees

(b)Upon the resumption of USRAP admissions, the Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of Homeland Security, is further directed to make changes, to the extent permitted by law, to prioritize refugee claims made by individuals on the basis of religious-based persecution, provided that the religion of the individual is a minority religion in the individual’s country of nationality. Where necessary and appropriate, the Secretaries of State and Homeland Security shall recommend legislation to the President that would assist with such prioritization. Executive Order Jan. 27, 2017 

It only makes sense to give priority to those persecuted.  ‘Persecuted’ would include many religious minority groups in the region; Christians, Yazidis…

In an exclusive interview with The Brody File, President Donald Trump says persecuted Christians will be given priority when it comes to applying for refugee status in the United States.

“We are going to help them,” President Trump tells CBN News. “They’ve been horribly treated. Do you know if you were a Christian in Syria it was impossible, at least very tough to get into the United States? 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.” CBN

Christian Freedom International president Jim Jacobson praised the order.

“This means that persecuted Christians will finally be considered for resettlement. Under the Obama administration, persecuted Christians from Syria, Iraq, and elsewhere were either essentially ignored or flatly denied consideration for resettlement to the U.S,” Jacobson said in a statement. “The Trump administration has given hope to persecuted Christians that their cases will finally be considered.”  ChristianPost

On Friday President Trump signed an executive order that bans Syrian refugees indefinitely, suspends the U.S. refugee program for 120 days, and blocks entry into the U.S. for 90 days for citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.

Ammar Sawan is a Syrian now living in Jordan who applied to resettle in the U.S.   Sawan and his family is safe in Jordan, he can put all your dreams in the country he is now in – Jordan.

A refugee who fled worn-torn Syria and dreamed of living in the United States with his family is among those who have spoken out following Trump’s immigration ban.

Ammar Sawan took his first step toward resettlement in the US three months ago by submitting to an initial round of security screenings.  But his plan for a better life fell apart when President Donald Trump enforced an indefinite ban on Friday on displaced Syrians entering the United States.

Sawan, who is a Syrian refugee living in Amman, Jordan with his family, revealed on Saturday that he learned of Trump’s decision from TV news the night before.  ‘When we heard of the order, it was like a bolt of lightning, and all our hopes and dreams vanished,’ the 40 year-old said.

The upholsterer, who supports his family with odd jobs in Amman, said he was especially disappointed for his four children who he had hoped would get a good education in the U.S.  DailyMail
