“This Tiny Georgia Town Received More Syrian Refugees Than LA And NYC Combined,” by Peter Hasson, Daily Caller, September 21, 2016 (thanks to Mark):

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.

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.

Another 36 refugees came from Burma, 26 came from Somalia, 21 from the Central African Republic, 18 from Eritrea, 13 from Bhutan, eight from Ethiopia, seven from Afghanistan, six from the Ivory Coast, four from Iraq, two each from Pakistan and Iraq, and one refugee from Sudan.

According to U.S. Census data, the median income in Stone Mountain is $36,444, well below the national average of $53,482. Stone Mountain has a poverty rate of 22.5 percent, which is significantly higher than the national average of 13.5 percent.
