U.S. Citizenship and Immigration ServicesA U.S.-born Israeli author and Middle East analyst says he is encouraged by new figures that show most refugees entering the United States identify as Christians. 

Figures from the U.S. State Department show admissions over an 11-month period allowed mostly Christians – 60 percent of the refugees - to enter the U.S. compared to 13 percent who identified as Muslims.

OneNewsNow first reported on those figures in a Jan. 5 story after an immigration watchdog group reviewed the figures, which suggest a huge flip-flop from the Obama administration in which Christian refugees trickled into the U.S. in single digits.

Rubin, DavidDavid Rubin, the former mayor of the Israeli city of Shiloh, tells OneNewsNow that he has been pushing for that change for a long time.

"I can tell you as one living in Israel," he says, "that the Christian population is much less problematic to the Muslim population. The Christian population doesn't believe in Jihad. They're not going to cause the problems that the Muslim Arabs will. They're not going to be committing terrorist attacks."

Citing his 2010 book "The Islamic Tsunami," Rubin says the U.S. should not only address illegal immigration but also change U.S. policy to favor Christians from abroad who want to immigrate to the U.S.
