This year marks the first time in history where Obama’s administration has ushered in more Muslim refugees then Christian refugees entering the United States.
The State Department’s Refugee Processing Center reports that there have been 38,901 Muslim refugees in contrast to the 37,521 Christians entering the U.S. in fiscal 2016 for a total of 85,000 refugees to arrive this year alone.
In this week’s Pew Research analysis, they’ve determined that 46 percent of Muslims have entered the U.S. verses 44 percent Christians refugees.
Reports also show that the U.S. has brought in more than four times the number of immigrants then any other country, with a total of 46 million flowing in since 1990, followed by Germany’s 12 million.

According to promises made by President-elect Trump, reviews of the U.S. immigration and refugee policies will occur during a halt on immigration to determine a better security system that would vet those coming from war-torn countries mostly in Muslim nations.
Mexico has been reported to be the most common path for those wanting to enter America, with refugees entering in greater number then since the fall of the Berlin Wall which allowed communists from foreign countries to flood the west.
