In a matter of days, tens of thousands of Christian minority groups were forced out of their homes by the Islamic State. They left everything behind- and these refugee camps became their new home.
Recently two California Congressmen introduced a bill to help these Christians and other religious minorities, that have been persecuted in Iraq and Syria.
If approved, it would give these groups priority in the U.S Refugee Admissions Program, and ultimately the possibility of relocating to the U.S.
The Protecting Religious Minorities Persecuted by ISIS Act, was introduced by two San Diego area legislators: Republican Duncan Hunter and Democrat Juan Vargas. The city actually has one of the largest Middle Eastern immigrant communities in the U.S.
In addition to threatening and killing Christians and other religious minorities, ISIS terrorists have also destroyed churches and worshiping sites.
