A new study reports that refugees who were resettled in Michigan have contributed more than $200 million to the economy in the last decade. The new data comes after President Trump's refugee admissions cap hopes to relieve concerns surrounding refugees. According to U.S. state department data, more than 10,000 reguees resettled into Macomb, Oakland, Wayne and Washtenaw counties between 2007 and 2016. Many of whom are eligible for up to eight months of financial assistance before they go on their own.
