Refugee crisis

A Congressman of Texas has urged the US government to take concrete steps to ensure that Christian refugees receive substantial help.

According to details, Republican Brian Babin, expressed an urgent need to take more and effective steps in order to facilitate the battered Christian refugees from Syria. He urged the Obama administration to stop at once its plan to allow 10,000 Syrian refugees.

Republican Brian Babin is of the opinion that if the Obama administration carries out its plan to take in 10,000 Syrian refugee, the incoming migrants will be a great threat to national security. He urged that instead of taking in Muslim refugees, Christians from Syria should be allowed to come to the U.S.

Republican Brian Babin while talking on the Laura Ingraham show said that a recent bill which urges for an immediate halt for the taking in of 10,000 Syrian refugees. He said, there should be an instantaneous suspension of the Refugee Resettlement Program.

He said that the government should consider and re evaluate, the costs that the U.S. government will bear if 10,000 Syrian refugees are brought in to America. Moreover, he said that there will be great security risks that these migrants could pose to national security. According to this program the U.S. government will take in refugees on the basis of humanitarian concerns.

Nevertheless, in his opinion, this program definitely an obvious channel for world’s most dangerous terrorist group ISIS to “set up bases of operations” in the United States. Apart from ISIS, any other terrorist outfits may sneak into the U.S. therefore, this plan should be postponed. At the same time, though, he said the U.S. should be doing more to accept Christian refugees.

“The most persecuted religious minority in the world have been Christians, and of these 70,000, soon to be 100,000 per year coming in from the Middle East, less than four percent are Christian. The Christians are afraid, and do not go into these human refugee camps, and therefore they are not included by the U.N. to have refugee status to come into the states. This has got to be addressed as well.”
