According to data from the U.S. State Department’s Refugee Processing Center, almost all of the Syrian refugees resettled in Virginia since October have been placed in towns with lower incomes and higher poverty rates.
And,  Syrian  refugees are resettled  hours away from the wealthy suburbs of the capital, Washington D.C.

 Ninety-two percent  of Syrian refugees placed in Virginia are 100 miles away from Washington D.C.

 Specific statistics:  of  the 121 Syrian refugees placed in Virginia so far, 112 have been placed in communities at least 100 miles away from the nation’s capital.
