The Trump administration faces an Oct. 1 deadline to decide how many refugees the US will admit in 2021. In the last three years, it has slashed the number dramatically. 

A July report from Open Doors USA and World Relief showed a 90% reduction since 2015 in the number of Christian refugees the US has resettled from countries where the church faces persecution.

Newswatch is seen weekdays on the CBN News Channel
