This bill would have required refugee resettlement organizations, local, and state government agents to make regular reports on refugees residing in West Virginia, including metrics on health and economic impact. This type of legislation creates unnecessary work when refugees settle into a community. It makes it more difficult for agencies that work with the refugees, and builds resistance to refugees from public officials who will have to complete unnecessary reports.
