If you're a non-Christian refugee seeking entry to the U.S. in 2018... good luck.
Driving the news: The Trump administration has again cut the number of refugees allowed (from 45,000 to 30,000) and the overwhelming majority of the small group admitted this past year are Christians, Axios' Stef Kight reports.
The big picture: Islam is the predominant religion in nations such as Syria, Afghanistan and Somalia, which account for 39% of the 25 million refugees in the world, according to UN data. Most Christian refugees came from Iraq, Iran and Myanmar (formerly Burma), where many faced brutal persecution.
Between the lines: The Trump administration has vowed to protect persecuted Christians around the world.
The bottom line: The U.S. is on track to accept fewer than half its cap for the 2018 fiscal year.
