Texas is top refugee resettlement state in the nation since 2008 (blue state here we come?)

I’m working on a post on Kentucky which sent me back to the Refugee Processing Center for some numbers.

So, I saw this data and figured it would be a useful bit of information for you especially as there is much talk these days as a result of the US Senate race there about Texas turning blue.

Big enough for all?

Of course, refugee numbers alone aren’t going to be the deciding factor, but as refugees come in (along with all of the other migrants coming in to Texas) they help to change the political landscape by eroding the long-standing cultural cohesiveness and character of the state.

So here is a map from Wrapsnet.  I know the numbers are hard to read but below you will find the numbers for the top ten resettlement states in the US from the beginning of Obama’s term in office up to today.

 

Total refugee admissions to the US from the fall of 2008 to the present day are 634,460:
