President Donald Trump’s administration was revising its temporary ban on refugees, White House adviser Stephen Miller said Wednesday. It will in large part be similar to the original ban, which was overturned by the judicial system in early February, Miller claimed. Trump has said that the ban was necessary for the security of the U.S.

In 2016, the Cato Institute published a study entitled “Terrorism and Risk Analysis” which determined that no refugee has committed an act of terror in the United States since the 1970s, when three Cubans killed a Chilean dissident, an American aide, and a Cuban exile leader.Since 1980, when rigorous refugee-screening procedures were put in place, there have been no terrorist attacks by refugees.

Where exactly do refugees work once they come to the U.S.? It’s a simple question, but the answer has become more complex than one might expect. For one, there was no easy-to-find, publicly available dataset that tracked where refugees work. Some non-profit organizations attempted to collect that information, but even then, the available data depended on multiple factors: which non-profit is collecting the information, the state where refugees work and the industries in which they work, to name a few.

Economist Paul Hagstrom said in the New York Times that several refugees work in “starter jobs, working as greenhouses, kitchens or laundromats — jobs in which immigrants have worked for generations.

“It’s a well-worn path,” said Hagstrom, who’s a professor of economics at Hamilton College in upstate New York.

In addition, there were nearly 2 million highly skilled, well-educated immigrants in the U.S. that were either underemployed (meaning, working in low-skill jobs) or unemployed, according to a December 2016 report from the Migration Policy Institute.

Finally, immigrant laborers have generally tended to go for different low-skill jobs than low-skill U.S. workers.
