How many Syrian refugees are in the US?
There are about 1,869 Syrian refugees in the U.S. which makes 0.0006 of the population of Syrians.
YES. There a number of Syrian Refugees in Belgium.
Why do Syrian Refugees prefer to go to Europe and the US when they are closer to the Arab and Islamic World?
First, it should be clarified that this is not just a question of preferences, although those are certainly an important factor in the decision-making process, but a stronger deciding factor is what different countries are offering and the possibility of having a good life post-settlement. Second, it should be noted that the original preferences of Syrians were to stay locally, believing that the Syrian Civil War would end soon and they could return. As Syrians… Read More
Syrian Refugees in Jordan - 2012 was released on: USA: 6 February 2012
As of 2017, Turkey has the most Syrian refugees with 2.7 million. Turkey borders Syria to the north.
YES. Currently, Turkey has over 2.1 million Syrian Refugees, Lebanon has 1.9 million Syrian Refugees, and Jordan has roughly 1 million refugees if the Syrian and Iraqi Refugees in Jordan are added together (ignoring the Palestinian "Refugees" who are Jordanian citizens or have Jordanian residency).
Syrian refugees are primarily Arabic speakers, but a minority of the refugees speak either Kurdish, Armenian, or Aramaic if they come from one of the minorities in the country (the Kurds, Armenians, or Aramean/Assyrian Christians). Of course, a significant minority of the migrants who are mixed in with the Syrian Refugees are not actually Syrians, and, therefore, speak other languages from their homelands.
There are at least 3 million Palestinian refugees in the Middle East, along with about 2-3 million Syrian refugees and 2-3 million Iraqi refugees. This does not even count smaller groups of refugees or internally displaced persons.
NONE. Kuwait has refused to accept any refugees and has a policy of forcibly deporting any refugees that come to its borders. However, the Kuwaiti government has extended indefinitely the current VISAs that roughly 120,000 Syrian Nationals living in Kuwait have. To clarify, these 120,000 Syrians are not refugees, but guest workers, most of whom arrived in Kuwait long before the Syrian Civil War and would have returned to Syria during this period but for… Read More
NONE. Iran refuses to allow any Syrian refugees to come to the country. Iran's policy is particularly maddening since Iran is supporting Assad, who was responsible for starting the conflict back in 2011. Since Iran has a history of mistreating refugees (such as those coming from nearby Afghanistan), Syrians feel that they have better chance in Europe.
Because they are a compassionate nation.
Because of the Syrian Civil War and the high degree of civil unrest in Iraq, the borders are not well-patrolled. Therefore, the refugees are simply running/driving across the border. In some cases, they are smuggled across, but this is becoming less common. Additionally, many more refugees flee to Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan since those countries are much more stable.
There are currently thousands of refugees attempting to flee Syria. Many countries has expressed willingness to accept refugees from the conflict including NATO countries and some muslim countries.
Yes. There are hundreds of thousands of refugees in Turkey and the number is increasing quickly as more and more Arabs flee the Syrian Civil War as refugees.
Yes there are many millions of refugees today in many parts of the world where there is conflict. You seriously need to watch the news or read the papers. Have you not heard that there are four million Syrian refugees who have fled the civil war in Syria? The situation is so bad that it is talked about all the time.
The answer used to be Syria. However, given the Syrian Civil War, many Iraqi refugees have fled Syria. Jordan is probably a better answer now, even though it lacks a large number of Iraqi refugees.
As of now (March 3rd, 2013) Turkey is experiencing an influx of refugees from Syria fleeing to avoid the Syrian Civil War. Istanbul, although far north, is receiving many refugees.
There is a small number of Syrian Refugees who are going to Iraq, but this is usually a movement in transit. Iraq is currently involved in much the same civil war that Syria is, so the people are not staying there. If you count those staying in Iraqi Kurdistan, the number jumps quite substantially with roughly 250,000 registered.
the people of democracy in the united nations are the big ally of the communication satellite in orphanage refugees for syrian government
Syrian refugees eat whatever they can get their hands on. The United Nations personnel who man the refugee camps typically serve the refugees simple porridges, oatmeal, or other foodstuffs that can be cheaply and efficiently brought to the camp
President Obama said in September 2015 that he wanted to accept at least 10,000 Syrian refugees, but it will take time for them (or for any refugees) to be vetted and they won't be admitted all at once. Whether more should be admitted is a question the president and congress will have to work out; but during a presidential election season, it's doubtful congress will okay large numbers of refugees, no matter where they are… Read More
According to the 2011 UN's High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) report, Afghanistan continues to be the prime country with the most refugees. Pakistan, Iran and the Syrian Arab Republic follow closely behind.
Both are examples of people who are being killed and prosecuted by extremist factions in the Middle East. Both are groups that need the support of the world community to reduce their suffering and the potential for future harm.
NONE. There is really no reason for Syrian Refugees to go to Afghanistan. Afghanistan is not near to Syria and getting there would be nearly impossible given the physical location of Islamic State, the borders between Kurdistan and Turkey, and numerous other intervening countries. Afghans do not speak Arabic; they speak Dari, Pashto, Uzbek, and Turkmen. Afghanistan has no governmental infrastructure to take care of refugees. Afghanistan is embroiled in its own struggle with the… Read More
Lebanon currently has a population of 4.1 million citizens, 400,000 Palestinian Refugees (who are denied citizenship even though almost all of them were born in Lebanon), and 1.3 million Syrian Refugees. Unfortunately, as the situation in Syria continues to deteriorate, it is expected that Lebanon will accommodate between 1.6-1.7 million Syrian Refugees by 2015. This surge in population is overtaxing the country's very limited resources.
The Hmong, are an Asian ethnic group from the mountainous regions of China, Vietnam, Laos, and Thailand. Many of the refugees in the US come from Laos.
The regime is attacking protestors cities, villages and avenuesby tanks and heavy weapons to force the syrian to stop thier uprising this resulted in fleeing large number of population to the neighbour countries.
The massive amount of violence in Syria against civilians, perpetrated by the Assad Regime, Jubhat an-Nusra, and the Islamic State, which control the majority of Syria, have caused a large percentage of Syrians to flee the country. Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey have each taken 1.4 million, 1.9. million, and 2.3 million refugees, but all three have basically argued that they are strained and overtaxed by the refugees that they have taken in and cannot afford… Read More

The figure usually given is about 250,000 for the period 1933-1941. The figure includes political refugees as well as people fleeing racial persecution.
As far as I know the only figure available is 250,000 refugees from Nazi Germany between 1933 and 1941. This figure includes political refugees.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees does the initial investigation of the potential refugees and handles most of the preliminary checks. This information is then forwarded to all governments that have agreed to take refugees and have not exceeded their internal quota (which would include the United States). The United States Department of State then leads a second investigation of the potential refugee with the consultation of the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security… Read More

There was over 1,000,000 refugees after the war.
35 million refugees are in the world today
about 750 refugees
The political situation being what it is, I cannot see a reasonable end to this conflict. Unlike many civil wars, this one has many interested parties each with very different aims. The Turks, Israelis, Iraqis, and Kurds all have an oar in the water so to speak - each rowing out of sync ! - The Russians and US wait on the edge. Nothing in this affair is simple, very little is straightforward military action… Read More
