Religious affiliation of U.S. refugees: Growing number of Muslims

A new Pew Research Center report has details on the growing number of U.S. refugees that are Muslim — indeed, in 2016, a record number of Muslim refugees were admitted to the U.S. At the same time, Christians continue to make up a large share of the refugees admitted to the United States. In fiscal 2017, for example, a plurality of refugee arrivals were Christian (47%), with Muslims (43%) representing the second-largest religious group.
