The states most impacted by refugees:

Bottom Line: I found it interesting that Hawaii was the state leading the new legal challenge to the President's refugee ban from six countries with which we lack a means of proper vetting. The reason, why I observed overtly yesterday, is that Hawaii isn't subjected to the receiving of these refugees. Easy for them to condemn something they aren't subjected to...So I wanted to ensure that I had my facts in order and I research the countries that are most impacted by refugees. Last year here were those states:

And on a relative basis (adjusting for population) here are the most impacted:

It's notable that six of the top impacted states on a total refugee basis, and relative basis, voted for President Trump who ran on this platform position. So as I cited at the onset of this story. Easy for Hawaii to contest the issue but I wonder how eager they'd be if we dropped thousands of unvetted refugees off on the capital steps in Honolulu...
