President Donald Trump has stated that persecuted Christians will be given priority when applying for refugee status in the United States.
During an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network on Friday, President Trump spoke with host David Brody.
“We are going to help them. They’ve been horribly treated. Do you know if you were a Christian in Syria it was impossible…, if you were a Muslim you could come in…., 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.”
Trump signed an executive order Friday afternoon that will temporarily “shut the door” to most U.S.-bound immigrants from Muslim countries and suspend the Syrian refugee program.
The Washington Examiner posted an excerpt from a copy of a draft of the order:
“The secretaries of state and homeland security, as appropriate, shall cease refugee processing of and the admittance of nationals of Syria as refugees until such time as I have determined that sufficient changes have been made to the [U.S. Refugee Admittance Program] to ensure its alignment with the national interest.”
