Poll: White Evangelicals Least Likely To Accept Refugees

A new poll has found that white evangelical Christians are the least likely group to welcome refugees, despite Biblical commands to do so.

The Pew Research Center notes that only 25% of white evangelicals said the U.S. has a responsibility to accept refugees, while 68% of these Christians believe the U.S. does not.

Twenty-six percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents said the U.S. has a responsibility to accept refugees.

Seventy-four percent of Democrats and Democratic leaners said the U.S. should accept refugees.

Nationally, 51% of Americans believe the U.S. has a responsibility to accept refugees, while 43% say it does not.

In 2017, evangelist Franklin Graham claimed that immigration is “not a Bible issue” despite the numerous verses in the Bible that command believers to welcome immigrants, noted The Washington Post.
