Refugee resettlement has taken hold in Ohio! The refugee agencies find a state or area and flood it with thousands of the so-called “refugees” who get all the “goodies” right away. YOU pay for this! This is devastating to entire communities as it drains the taxes from the town. The big question is why the governor of the state has allowed this to happen to the citizens of Ohio. John Kasich should answer for this.
Ohio has been receiving over 2,000 refugees a year since 2012, and all told in the last ten years it received 21,230. For comparison Delaware hardly gets any (zero in 2014) and Texas is getting over 7,000 a year.
In fiscal year 2014, Ohio received the 7th highest number of refugees in the country.
The Obama Administration and the politically Far Left federal resettlement contractors probably recognize the electoral value of Ohio, so they want to make sure it becomes a reliably Democrat-voting state.
The states higher on the 2014 list than Ohio (2,815) in the last fiscal year are in descending order: Texas, California, New York, Michigan, Florida and Arizona.
In the ten year analysis, the Bhutanese (6,607) saw the highest number of their ethnic group settled in Ohio followed by Somalis (5,611). Iraqis were next with 2,617. Remember though that especially with the Somalis, Ohio likely saw the Somali number increase more rapidly as secondary migrants (resettled elsewhere in the US) went to mostly Columbus to join their fellow Somalis to establish a large Somali enclave there. The secondary migrants are not reflected in that 5,611 number.
Most Somalis were resettled in Columbus (over 4,700 of the over 5,000) with Cleveland getting 322 directly resettled there from Africa. But, interestingly 21 other towns and cities got Somalis, albeit in smaller numbers.
Remember the Columbus subsidized housing riot in 2012! How would you like to see this in your home town?
