The Obama administration has admitted 383 Syrian refugees into the United States since the Paris terrorist attacks on November 13, and just one (0.2 percent) is a Christian.

According to data from the State Department Refugee Processing Center, 382 of the refugees admitted over that period are Muslims–374 Sunnis, three Shi’ites, and five described simply as “Moslem.”

Of the 383 total, 95 (24.8 percent) are men between the ages of 14 and 50. Eighty-eight (22.9 percent) are women 14-50, 92 (24 percent) are boys under 14; 89 (23.2 percent) are girls under 14; 10 (2.6 percent) are men older than 50 and nine (2.3 percent) are women over 50.

The sole Christian is an adherent of the Greek Orthodox Church. Syria’s Christian community accounts for an estimated 10 percent of the population.
