Donald Trump's immigration tsar said Friday that persecuted Christians are only welcome in the United States if their number is no more than a strict refugee limit this week.

Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, also said that if desperate religious refugees try to enter the country and submit asylum applications – a separate process of refugee application – they are definitely not & # 39; let in.

& # 39; We are returning them & # 39 ;, Cuccinelli told DailyMail.com during a brief exchange with reporters in the northern driveway of the White House.

He stressed that people who encounter the new refugee hats, & # 39; if they have not tried to apply for asylum in a country they have come through & # 39; would not have a practical option to gain legal access to the US

An agitated Cucinelli said that the overall refugee margin of 18,000 would include 7,500 & # 39; catch-all & # 39; spaces that could include religious refugees.

But once the limit is reached, he confirmed, people who want to come to the US to escape religious oppression will not enter.

Cucinelli cooked at DailyMail.com's questions about whether those people could find themselves without a country.

& # 39; I have problems with how you ask your alleged question, & # 39; he said and called it a & # 39; accusation & # 39 ;.

As Cucinelli walked away, DailyMail.com walked beside him and asked if some persecuted Christians didn't come in & # 39;

A press employee mocked: & # 39; Your anger is clearly visible & # 39; when she rushed him away.

Trump cited statistics that show that 80 percent of the people on earth live in nations where religious freedom is restricted or threatened.

& # 39; When I heard that number, I said: & # 39; Please go back and check because it is impossible to knock & # 39 ;, he said. & # 39; And unfortunately it was 80 percent. & # 39;
