Trump's refugee policy to be more focused on those facing genocide by radical Islamists

Susan Wright:
If he carries through with this, it will go a long way towards improving my outlook for a Trump presidency.

This needs to happen, and should have been the policy, all along.

President Trump sat down to speak with the Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody on Friday, when the topic of the Syrian refugee program was brought up.

According to Trump’s word, Christians will be given priority status when seeking asylum.

“We are going to help them. They’ve been horribly treated,” Trump told the Christian Broadcasting Network in an interview set to air Sunday.

Upon being asked if he sees persecuted Christians “as kind of a priority” when it comes to granting non-citizens refugee status, Trump told Brady: “Yes.”

Was Trump simply pandering to the CBN crowd?

As it is with most politicians, that’s always a possibility.

Still, there’s merit to the concerns Trump raised. Christians in the Muslim-dominated territories that have been overrun with ISIS and other Islamic groups face unusually cruel treatment.
...
Even the Kerry Secretary of States office had to admit that Christians were suffering from genocide at the hands of ISIL yet they focused most of their refugee resources and efforts in bringing Muslims.  They did virtually nothing about the mass beheadings of Christians in Libya.  The slaughter of Christians as a result of Obama's policies that allowed ISIL to rise should be a stain on his record forever.

I suspect the reason for this failure is tied to Democrat politics of not wanting to bring in groups that might eventually become Republicans, and their pandering to Muslim groups.
