The government has admitted 651 Syrian refugees into the United States since Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL) terrorists attacked Paris last November, three of whom (0.46 percent) are Christians.

The three, all male, are a Greek Orthodox, an Orthodox adherent and one person described in data from the State Department Refugee Processing Center simply as “Christian.”

Muslims make up 647 of the 651 Syrian refugees–or 99 percent of the total.

634 of the refugees (or 97.3 percent) of the 651 Syrian refugees approved for resettlement since the Paris attacks are Sunni Muslims. The remainder include three Shi’ites, ten others described as Muslims but without any further details, and one refugee identified in Refugee Processing Center data as “other religion.”
