Catholic World News – February 21, 2017
Stating that “I am not against refugees, since I was one myself,” a Chaldean Catholic bishop who ministers in California defended President Donald Trump’s temporary ban on travel from seven predominantly Muslim nations.
Bishop Bawai Soro, who came to the United States as a refugee from Iraq in 1973, wrote in a San Diego newspaper column that “the events of Sept. 11, 2001, illustrated how radical Islamic terrorism is the clear and present danger facing America.”
