Out of 85,000 Refugees, Obama Brings Few to D.C.


Under Obama’s program, 84,995 refugee’s have since settled in America with a quarter of them located in Texas, California, and New York.

Washington DC, Arkansas, and Wyoming saw less then 10 refugees settle in their state since 2016, according to the analysis of the State Department data by Pew Research Center.  

Absolutely no refugees were reported to have been settled in Hawaii (where Obama’s Christmas vacation home is) and Delaware (Joe Biden’s home state).


These 10 states listed hold 50% of the refugee population, with 15,000 more added in 2016.

Paul Bedard from the Washington Examiner stated, “The Democratic Republic of the Congo (16,370) was the top origin country among refugees resettled in 2016. Syrian refugees resettled in fiscal 2016 – have garnered more attention from state leaders, with 31 governors opposing this group’s resettlement in their states. Even so, resettlement patterns of Syrian refugees across the states are similar to the national average.”
