As noted in the previous post there is evidence that few Syrian Christian Refugees entered the US since the Syrian crisis began. According to the evidence only 56 out of a total of around 10,000 refugees were Christian. It is reported that 10% of the Syrian population is Christian . Hence , one would think that around 1000 of the Syrian Refugees to the US would be Christian. Apparently , one of the reasons given for this is that the Jordanian refugee camps from where the Syrian refugees were taken have few Christians. I do not know if this is valid or not. It looks as if the Trump Order , in part, is to correct this imbalance.
It got me thinking about Canada, my home country, and I attempted to find the numbers here. It has proven to be difficult . On the Government website dealing with the topic no religious affiliation of the refugees is given in any of the charts I examined. All I could find was an article in the Ottawa Citizen of September 2015 where it was alleged that there were far more Syrian Christian Refugees coming to Canada under a private sponsor than through government sponsorship. Apparently, many of the private sponsors are Christian individuals and organizations and they have developed channels with Christians in Syria. Then I thought well , if that is the case , and to ensure that minority rights are as much a part of the Syrian Refugee Program as they are in the country at large , all the Government has to do is seek advice of the Christians.
