Poll: 53% of Americans Oppose Syrian Refugees

News

A new Bloomberg poll shows most Americans side with Republicans in halting the program to accept Syrian refugees in the U.S.

The Obama administration’s plan would take in 10,000 refugees next year. The poll found that 53% of Americans don’t want Syrian refugees resettled in the United States, 28% said it should proceed without religious screening, another 11% said only Christians fleeing ISIS and Syria’s civil war should be allowed in.

The results were split along partisan lines. GOP lawmakers and presidential candidates say terrorists could use the program to sneak into the U.S.
