U.S. Admits More than TWICE the Number of Migrants from Muslim World than Europe

The United States admits more than twice the number of immigrants from majority-Muslim nations than from countries in the European Union, according to a Senate analysis of Department of Homeland Security data.

According a chart released Thursday by the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, in the five years spanning from FY 2009 through FY 2013, the U.S. issued approximately 680,000 green cards to migrants from Muslim nations compared to the 270,000 green cards issued to migrants from the European Union.
