President Donald Trump said in an interview today that Christian refugees will be given priority status when applying to be accepted into the United States, per The Brody File.
Of the situation, the President said:
“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.”
It’s been a common criticism of the Trump Administration’s immigration policies that as Americans, we should be willing to accept persecuted refugees.
So this news comes as a great—and pleasant—surprise for many.
