Blog #2: Refugees in America

  1. The article discusses the states with the most and least refugees in America. It also shows where refugees are fleeing from and which states they are settling in.   I chose this article because where I’m from there is a high population of refugees from Somalia where I am from in Minnesota, so I have noticed this issue first hand.
  2. The article uses data from the US Office of Refugee and Resettlement, US Department of State, Bureau of population, refugees and migration, and the US department of homeland security. Other sources include state departments who work with placement agencies to help locate new homes for refugees.
  3. I wish the article would have described more reasons why citizens are leaving and why some states have higher percentages than others.

    And so how do you think the federal offices you mention get their data on refugees/immigrants?
