The 10 States with the Most Syrian Refugees

The United States has accepted and resettled refugees from many nations, including Syria, for decades. However, the push to settle Muslim refugees from Syria didn't begin in earnest until about 2015 under President Barack Obama.

American Children First went back and looked at the publicly available data provided by the Refugee Processing Center to see which states had received the most Syrian refugees since January 1, 2015.
