Where Syrian Refugees Are Likely to Settle in the U.S. - CityLab
Quote:
But while the six metros above are the most popular homes for Syrian immigrants in particular, cities such as Atlanta, San Diego, and Boston host large populations of immigrants from the same part of the world. In that sense, these places might also be possible destinations for the incoming Syrians. Here’s a metro map showing how the immigrant population from Western Asia (the Middle East minus Egypt) is distributed across the U.S.:

Very interesting. I did not see in the article which areas of the Atlanta metro (or Atlanta area) they are mostly located. The first place that comes to mind for some reason is the Clarkston area, though I have no proof of this.

I have not seen any information regarding the years where heavy Syrian immigration has taken place (of course not to be compared to Detroit, NYC, etc).

Clayton has seen a large number of asain refugees in the past. This is why the Forest Park area is so diverse today.

Wherever they go, I hope they are given resources to help them survive, settle, and assimilate. These refugees have been through a living hell for the past several years.

And this country will still use its CIA to destabilize and foment dissent in countries like Syria. Just the typical neo-colonial cycle of insanity.

Clarkston has been called one of the most diverse cities in the country (or something similar) because of the refugees that have been relocated there. I'm not sure if new refugees are still being sent to that particular city.

Yeah, I heard that a few years ago and was surprised but when I thought of how the area had changed, it really wasn't something I should have been surprised to hear.

The article said Atlanta but we all know that Atlanta does not always mean Atlanta and can be somewhere in Dekalb, Cobb, Gwinnett, etc. I am curious where the money to help them with their stay will come from when Georgia residents have such trouble securing aid.

My sister's ex's family was relocated there from Bosnia. Or maybe it was Scottdale. One of them. It's a refugee hotspot. Unfortunately it's also really sketchy. A bad first impression.
