Stone Mountain More Syrian Refugees Than LA And NYC Combined

Stone Mountain, Georgia — a city with just over 6,000 residents and a poverty rate well above the national average — has resettled more Syrian refugees than Los Angeles and New York City combined.

Since October 1 (the start of the fiscal year), 72 Syrian refugees have been placed in Stone Mountain, State Department data shows. Los Angeles has resettled just 45 Syrian refugees, while NYC has only resettled nine.

Syrians aren’t the only refugees placed in Stone Mountain this year. Since October 1, 299 refugees have been resettled in the Georgia town. That’s roughly five percent of Stone Mountain’s July, 2015 population (6,109, according to U.S. Census data).

The largest group of refugees are from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which had 83 refugees placed in Stone Mountain.

Must be a Democrat in the mayors office. Must be good for business as most refugees receive $1,800.00 a month free taxpayer money to live on. Throw in free health care, utility's, education, etc, they are earning more than most people on SS. Keep voting for those Democrats folks!
