Syrian Refugees In the United States, An Interactive

This bit is inspired by a map made in the New York Times. This piece appeared originally on the Columbia Missourian.

People think they’re stopping Syrian refugees from entering the United States, but guess what: they’re already here.

The graphic below shows states with governors who have pledged to keep out refugees, while the blue dots show where most of the refugees from the last ten years have resettled.

I made this by smashing together some data from various government sources.
