A total of 125 refugees from Iran and Iraq settled on Long Island from 2007 through the end of January 2017, according to State Department data gathered by the Associated Press. No refugees settled from the other countries included in President Donald Trump's original executive order temporarily banning refugees and immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries. Long Island's total is a small percent of the 11,258 refugees who settled in New York State during this period. The data does not include other types of immigration or visits to the U.S. The data tracks the refugees' stated destination in the United States. In many cases, this is where the refugees first lived, although many may have since moved.
