Metro Detroit Groups Say Region is Ready for Influx of Syrian Refugees

The Obama Administration says the U.S. will accept 10,000 additional refugees from Syria. And many of them may resettle in Metro Detroit.

Federal officials say the region has the fourth-largest population of Syrian immigrants in the U.S.

The head of the Arab American and Chaldean Council, Haifa Fakhouri, says those refugees could be a boon to the area because they would be able to create businesses and help populate desolate areas of Detroit.
