Is the Government Ignoring Christian Refugees?

The American Center for Law and Justice is calling on the Obama administration to provide documentation showing what it's doing to help Christians suffering persecution and genocide in Syria following revelations that less than 1 percent of all admitted refugees are religious minorities seeking asylum.

The conservative law group cited U.S. government statistics which show that among the Syrian refugees being granted asylum in the United States this year, only 56 of the 11,000 are Christians.

In response to the low number of Christians being granted asylum in the U.S., the ACLJ said on Wednesday that it has filed a Joint Status Report that requires the State Department to provide documentation about what it's doing to help Christians before Dec. 28.
