The Obama administration is preparing to bring as many as 75,000 Syrian immigrants into the United States over the next five years, most of them Muslim refugees fleeing the Islamic State.
The government plans to allow 10,000 Syrians to immigrate to America in 2015 alone, resettling them in seven or more states around the country.
The State Department has not announced the destination cities for these refugees, in accordance with long-standing policy, but local media reports have identified several states that will receive these immigrants.
Those states are Kentucky, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Texas, and Washington. Other locations are, of course, possible, and perhaps even likely.
The Syrian civil war between President Bashar al Assad and Islamic militants like the Islamic State , the al-Nusra Front, and the Free Syrian Army have driven more than three million Syrians from their homeland.
Given that Syria’s population is estimated to be roughly 90 percent Muslim, most of the refugees are likely Islamic as well.
However, although more than 300,000 Syrian Christians have reportedly been forced to flee the country, “neither the United Nations nor the Obama administration has shown a willingness to bring large numbers of Christian Syrians to the United States,” according to Greek Catholic sources cited by WND.
Logically, although the Islamic State terrorists have certainly committed their share of atrocities against their fellow Muslims, one would assume that Syrian Christians have more to fear from the radical Islamic groups currently waging war in their homeland.
Nonetheless, President Barack Obama has thrown the doors wide for Muslim refugees, despite the fact that they obviously pose a more significant security risk.
