SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Americans are more concerned than ever about what will become of Afghans fleeing their country. In truth, many could end up in the Sacramento area. It’s one of the most popular locations for Afghan immigrants.
Kerry Ham is the director of World Relief Sacramento. It is an organization that works with the government to settle refugees. He knows firsthand why many Afghans choose Sacramento.
“In resettlement, people go where their community is. And as many people know, one out of every nine Afghans in the United States come to the general Sacramento area,” Ham explained.
