Texas Sees Major Cuts in Refugees from Iraq, Syria in 2018
Texas welcomed 67 percent fewer refugees in fiscal year 2018 than in 2017, down to 1,697 people from 4,768.
Some of the starkest drops in refugee arrivals were from Iraq, Iran and Syria, majority Muslim countries.
Iraqi refugee resettlement dropped from 949 to 25 in Texas. The number of Syrian refugees went from 455 to just one in fiscal year 2018.
