This should continue now that the U.S. has pulled out of the U.N.’s Global Compact on Migration (the U.S. decides who will be allowed to enter our country, not the U.N)
In a major switch likely driven by his travel ban on several Middle Eastern nations, President Trump has begun flipping former President Obama’s preference of Muslim over Christian refugees.
Since the fiscal year began, 60 percent of new refugees admitted into the United States have been Christian, and just 13 percent Muslim.
It continues a trend started during Trump’s first 11 months in office. According to an analysis from Center for Immigration Studies Senior Researcher Nayla Rush:
Refugees admitted in the first 11 months of the Trump administration were mostly Christian (53.2 percent), while Muslims accounted for 32 percent and Buddhists and Hindus accounted for 9.2 percent.
The shift follows complaints by Christian groups that the Obama administration had overwhelmingly favored Muslims and ignored the plight of Christians, especially in Muslim nations. WashingtonExaminer
