Fun with numbers: find out how many refugees came to your town in last 5 years
Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 12, 2012
Just this morning as I wrote the previous post on an Iraqi woman who beat her daughter, I had a close look at some databases at the US State Department’s Refugee Processing Center.
They have a database where you can see how many refugees and from what countries were resettled in your town. And, I mean town! Apparently the cities are overflowing with immigrants and the State Department is busy spreading new refugees out to even small towns. They want to make sure you too experience the joys of multiculturalism.
Keep in mind, a refugee might be resettled in a particular town, but they are free to move after in some cases 3 months (it’s called secondary migration). No one tracks where they go (this is America you will be reminded by open borders activists), but the problem is that, assume they are receiving treatment for TB where originally resettled, there is no way of knowing if they continue the meds after moving.
So those resettled in your town may no longer be there, or conversely they have attracted secondary migrants to come to your town and the numbers of a particular nationality are now larger.
Go here and scroll down to “Arrivals by destination city by nationality” open link to a ‘fun’ database.
