Refugee Arrival Numbers

Thanks to Lisa Raffonelli at the Office of Refugee Resettlement, I’ve found a great new resource on the State Department’s Refugee Processing Center website. The site maps refugee arrivals by state and by country of origin. From this I found that in December 2012, two refugees from the DRC arrived in New Hampshire.

Ms. Raffonelli also pointed me toward the Office of Refugee Resettlement’s database of refugee arrivals, where I learned that in fiscal year 2012, 48 refugees from the DRC arrived in Connecticut, 67 refugees arrived in Massachusetts, 42 arrived in New Hampshire, and eight arrived in Maine.
