We have heard about the Afghans that the US helped escape from Afghanistan….and the question is where will they go?
Some of these refugees will be coming to the US….but where?
This article explains where the refugees will settle once they arrive in the US…..
The Biden administration notified governors and mayors on Wednesday of the number of Afghan evacuees their state is expected to receive in the coming weeks, two senior administration officials told Axios.
Why it matters: Although their exact immigration pathway is still unclear, an initial group of 37,000 Afghans will soon be headed to states across the country after many faced harrowing journeys from Afghanistan.
- Former Delaware Gov. Jack Markell (D), who President Biden appointed on Friday to oversee Afghan resettlement, made calls to state and local leaders notifying them on the number of Afghans to expect.
- In conversations with nearly every state on Wednesday, not one official declined to take in Afghans, one senior administration official told Axios. “I have to say it was a very warm conversation with state and local leaders.”

How will this play out?
I do not expect these poor people will be welcome with open arms…..I think back to the late 70s and the Vietnamese refugees…that was not always a pretty picture.

TY my friend chuq
They need to avoid settling too many of the families in the same district. That creates greater tension, and the refugees will tend to band together without properly assimilating.
Best wishes, Pete.
I agree but it will not keep them from finding each other. chuq
If they are far enough away, it won’t be practical for them to create some kind of ‘refugee ghetto’. Those seem to cause the problems with local people, at least over here.
After some time they will find each other…..problems occurred here with the Vietnamese but they finally started assimilating….chuq
