that less than 4% of the u.n. resettled refugees are christians. former archbishop george kerry said it best when he stated that this inadvertently discriminates against the very christian communities most victimized by the inhuman butchers of the so-called islamic state. it is a sad reality for christians in this part of the world right now. they are so desperate to leave that they have said that they will go almost anywhere, except the u.n. camps, to try to rebuild their lives. there's another method, however, other than the resettlement act, by which it is possible to admit christians and other groups into the u.s. as refugees. the u.s. state department has the authority to designate certain groups like christians as priority two refugees, which would enable them to enter the united states without having to be living in a u.n. refugee camp. the u.s. state department needs to act on this immediately. it defies logic that we would want to potentially -- potentially import the problems of the middle east into the very heart of america. the recent terrorist attacks in garland, texas,
