Update from Arizona Refugee Resettlement

Update from Arizona Refugee Resettlement
Here are some notes from the Refugee Resettlement Quarterly meeting, where the Arizona Refugee Resettlement Program provided members of the resettlement community with information on resources and arrivals for the upcoming year.
  • Pima County is expected to receive a little over 1.000 refugees in 2013, the majority of whom will be coming from Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Cuba, Congo (in order of greatest to least).
  • Given the increased violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and the Republic of the Congo, the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) predicts that the United States will be resettling around 50,000 Congolese refugees over the next few years.
