McCain Rips Cruz, Bush For Their Position on Refugees

Top Republicans are split on a proposal by two of their presidential candidates to allow only Christian refugees from Syria to enter the United States, according to The Hill.

Arizona Sen. John McCain announced Tuesday that he does not agree with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush on the issue. “I don’t think any child, whether they are Christian or whether they are atheist or whether they are Buddhist, that we should make a distinction,” he said. “My belief is that all children are God’s children.”

The Hill noted that while McCain rarely sides with President Obama, he supports the administration’s plan to resettle 10,000 Syrians in the United States next year. The refugees, a majority of them children, are fleeing their home country’s civil war.

According to The Washington Post, Cruz declared Sunday at a campaign event in South Carolina: “There is no meaningful risk of Christians committing acts of terror. If there were a group of radical Christians pledging to murder anyone who had a different religious view than they, we would have a different national security situation.”

Bush, during an appearance the same day on CNN’s “State of the Union,” argued that the United States “should focus our efforts as it relates to the refugees with the Christians that are being slaughtered.”
