Biden Admin Accused of ‘Condoning’ Christian Persecution Overseas

The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) has accused the Biden administration of “condoning” Christian persecution in Nigeria.

According to Open Doors International, 90% of religiously motivated murders occurred in Nigeria last year.

While the Nigerian government saved several hundred Christians who had been taken by the terrorist group Boko Haram, President Joe Biden “has not only ignored the plight of dying Christians in Nigeria, but he actually took steps to betray them,” the ACLJ report claims.

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo placed Nigeria on a special Countries of Particular Concern watchlist for its engagement in “systematic, ongoing, egregious violations of religious freedom.”

Current Secretary of State Antony Blinken reversed the move, an action ACLJ considers to be “essentially condoning the laundry list of human rights violations, violent attacks, and murder of innocent Christians and other religious minorities.”

After Blinken did not respond to a letter on the matter, ACLJ filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, demanding records regarding the decision to remove Nigeria from the watchlist.
