    National Review ^ | 11.18.15 | by ANDREW C. MCCARTHY

    Under federal law, the executive branch is expressly required to take religion into account in determining who is granted asylum.

    Under the provision governing asylum (section 1158 of Title 8, U.S. Code), an alien applying for admission must establish that ... religion... was or will be at least one central reason for persecuting the applicant.

    Moreover, to qualify for asylum in the United States, the applicant must be a 'refugee' as defined by federal law. That definition (set forth in Section 1101(a)(42)(A) of Title , U.S. Code) also requires the executive branch to take account of the alien's religion: The term 'refugee' means (A) any person who is outside any country of such person's nationality ... and who is unable or unwilling to return to ... that country because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of ... religion ...[.]

    The law requires a 'religious test.' And the reason for that is obvious. Asylum law is not a reflection of the incumbent president's personal (and rather eccentric) sense of compassion. Asylum is a discretionary national act of compassion that is directed, by law not whim, to address persecution...

    In the case of this war, the Islamic State is undeniably persecuting Christians. It is doing so, moreover, as a matter of doctrine...While there is no question that ISIS will kill and persecute Muslims whom it regards as apostates for refusing to adhere to its construction of Islam, it is abject idiocy to suggest that Muslims are facing the same ubiquity and intensity of persecution as Christians.

    Question of "religious persecution" for asylum not "what religion are you" as a requirement.

    Why don't we just ban Catholics & Jews? Just use your head please.

    The Refugee Act of 1980

    http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/STATUTE-94/pdf/STATUTE-94-Pg102.pdf

    read and stop being stupid you moron

    Persecution because of race, religion, nationality, membership in a certain social group, political opinion...

    You really think the refugees from Vietnam, Cambodia, Cuba, Bosnia... were persecuted because of their religion?

    I love how you delete all the sections that cover non religious refugees and then you claim the only type of refugee is religious.

    Idiot. Asshole.
