The fiscal year is over in 3 months and as of June 30th the US State Department has released statistics on which refugees are going to which states. For new readers these are the refugees in the regular Refugee Resettlement program; the stats do not include the surging border-invading migrants and “children,” asylees, temporary protected status holders, or diversity visa lottery winners. These are just the refugees resettled through the federal contractors ***to your states.
By the way, they previously made public which refugees were going to which cities, but that information is no longer available to us (why?).
The total resettled as of June 30th is 50,988 so they are on target to meet their Obama-set goal of 70,000 by September 30th, however, the border crisis and the overload communities will be feeling from that may stem this year’s tide of other third worlders.
Indeed, the frightening news about “refugees” from Central America invading America may well represent a public relations nightmare for the contractors who have, over three decades, carefully wrapped the word “refugee” in warm and fuzzy language.
Go here and open Arrivals by state and country location (see who is coming to your state).
