14,074 Syrian Refugees Admitted to US in Year Since Paris Attacks; 99.1% Muslim
by Patrick Goodenough
The Obama administration has resettled 14,074 Syrian refugees in the United States since the Paris terror attacks a year ago prompted concerns that terrorist groups could exploit refugee admission programs to infiltrate Western countries.
Of those 14,074 refugees, 13,954 (99.1 percent) are Muslims, including 13,808 Sunnis, 27 Shi'ites, and 119 others self-described in State Department Refugee Processing Center data as simply "Moslem."
Eighty-three (0.58 percent) of the 14,074 Syrian arrivals are Christians, and another 28 (0.19 percent) are Yazidis, another minority which, like the Christian community, has been singled out and targeted by violent jihadists in what the U.S. and several other governments have labeled "genocide."
