(Before It's News)

A little town in Georgia with a population of over 75 percent African American is a new dumping ground for “the tired, the poor” refugees from the sewers of Africa. A poverty rate of 22 percent for the town, ensures these new arrivals will find no work and mounting discontentment. A breeding ground for a new generation of unhappy misfits who will grow more angry over time. We know where this is going don’t we? Will someone ask why they are being dumped here?

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.

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.

As previously reported by The Daily Caller, the vast majority of Syrian refugees resettled in Virginia have been placed in low-income high-poverty cities, far away from the wealthy D.C. suburbs.
