Syrian Refugees Admitted Since Paris Attacks: 525 Muslims, 1 Christian
by Patrick Goodenough
The United States has admitted 526 Syrian refugees since Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL) terrorists attacked Paris last November, and just one (less than 0.2 percent) is a Christian.
Sunni Muslims account for 512 (97.3 percent) of the 526 Syrian refugees approved for resettlement in the U.S. since the Nov. 13 attacks, which prompted fresh concerns that terrorists could use refugee admission programs to enter Western countries.
The remaining 13 comprise three Shi'ites and ten refugees identified as "Moslem," according to data from the State Department Refugee Processing Center.
