Kallick, David D., Cyierra Roldan, and Silva Mathema. "Syrian Immigrants in the United
States." Center for American Progress, 2016.
Between January 2014 and October 2016, the United States admitted 15,583 Syrian
refugees (Kallick et al., 2016, P.4). They arrive in the US after being subjected to a highly
structured vetting process. A majority of the refugees have been resettled in Los
Angeles, Allentown, Pennsylvania, and Houston because there are a significant number
of Syrian immigrants living in these cities (it eases the integration process) (Kallick et
al., 2016, p.6). The researchers established that Syrian immigrants in the US earn a
median annual wage of $52,000 compared to $36,000 for other immigrants (Kallick et
al., 2016). Also, 27 percent of Syrian immigrant men hold an advanced degree compared
to 13 percent for the other immigrants living in the US (Kallick et al., 2016, p.7).
CDC. "SYRIAN REFUGEE HEALTH PROFILE." U.S. Department of Health and Human
Services Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Center for Emerging and
Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, 2016, 1-21.
Syrian refugees that are identifies for resettlement purposes to the United States
undergo a rigorous medical examination (CDC, 2016, p.10. They are first subjected to a
Visa Medical Examination- 6 months before their departure for screening of
inadmissible conditions. The selected refugees will then be subjected to another medical
assessment- Pre-departure medical screening, two weeks before their departure to the
United States. Finally, they undergo a Fit to Fly Pre-Embarkation Checks, 24-48 hours
before their departure (CDC, 2016, p.11). These screening tests show a majority of
Syrian refugees are diagnosed with chronic and non-communicable diseases, and it
helps the US healthcare providers address these health concerns (CDC, 2016, p.17).

Citizenship and Immigration of Canada. "Population Profile: Syrian Refugees."
Citizenship and Immigration of Canada, 2015.
The researchers stated that prior to the resettlement to Canada, Syrian refugees are
subjected to a medical test by the Immigration Medical Exam (IME) to determine
whether or not they are fit to be admitted to the country (Citizenship and Immigration
of Canada, 2015, p. 10). The following are taken into consideration during the
resettlement process of Syrian refugees, diet, family needs, religion, healthcare, and
employment opportunities (Citizenship and Immigration of Canada, 2015, p. 14). Health
care providers are advised to take into consideration the religious and cultural beliefs of
the Syrian refugees such as providing them with long hospital gowns for decency
purposes. Also, providing them with same-sex healthcare providers especially for
women’s reproductive health (Citizenship and Immigration of Canada, 2015, p. 17).
Senate Canada. "Finding Refuge in Canada: A Syrian Resettlement Story." The Journals
of the Senate, 2016, 1-53.
As of 2016, Canada had admitted over 30,000 Syrian refugees, and was processing an
additional 20,000 applications (Senate Canada, 2016, p. 15). The refugees come to
Canada through three different programs: government-assisted refugee program (GAR),
private sponsorship of refugee program (PSR), and the blended visa officer-referred
program (BVOR) (Senate Canada, 2016, p.17). The Senate Committee has identified the
following keys to success of the Syrian refugees’ integration process: language training
for all adults (95% of GARs and 79% of PSRs are currently receiving language training),
employment opportunities, appropriate response to refugee trauma, and family
reunification (Senate Canada, 2016, p.47). There are several gaps that need to be
