Comment worth noting: reader wants map to show state per capita refugee arrivals

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 30, 2016

Reader TipTipTopKek asked the following in a comment to the post last night with the map of the US .  He/she wants to know which states receive the most refugees on a per capita basis.

I would love to see these raw numbers reconfigured in two different ways:

First, as a per capita number based on the total population of the State

Second, as a per capita number based on the NON-HISPANIC WHITE population of the State

My suspicion is that, generally speaking and with Wyoming as an obvious exception, the highest RAPEfugee flows have been into the WHITEST States.

Maybe some one of you is good with numbers, I’m not, however we have previously posted the map below which shows the distribution of refugees to states on a per capita basis, but we don’t know which states are the whitest. I’m guessing the Dakotas, Nebraska, Idaho and Vermont are examples of states with large white populations and they definitely are getting more than their share of refugees.  There is no doubt there is a method to the madness—the UN/US State Dept. is seeding diversity.

What is this you ask? It is a map distorted to show which states are disproportionately receiving refugees based on their overall populations for years 2009-2012.  The number in each state is the number of refugees resettled per existing residents of the state. http://www.humanosphere.org/basics/2014/02/map-day-refugees-accepted-us-states-population-adjusted/

  1. Looking at this map, I would question that premise. Az has a high Hispanic population and a high Native American population alike, yet we appear to be getting a fairly high number of the hijras too.

      I don’t think there is an absolute direct correlation. And, yes, you are getting a very large number of Muslim refugees and have been over the years. That is because none of your elected officials have ever raised a single concern. Heck, your two US Senators are all for the refugee program. You should all be putting McCain on the hotseat over the issue!

  3. I don’t know about the white percentage of populations in those states, but I do know that New Hampshire and Idaho are known to be popular states for “conservative” re-settlement and both are bright red on your map.
