What countries do refugees come from?
Refugees are individuals who have been forced from their home due to violence, disease or religious persecution in their home country. Most recently, the majority of refugees resettling in the US have come from the Democratic Republic of Congo as well as other East and West African nations. Some Southeast Asian nations such as Burma (Myanmar) have produced many refugees also due to political violence and civil reference. Finally, Syria, Iraq and other nations in the Middle East have hemorrhaged with refugees over the past decade.
