It's not just Iraqis, and it's not just Boise. There are a fair number of Iranians in Twin Falls, for example. This is in addition to the significant Russian and Bosnian communities in both cities.

Lane, the USA Today story noted Twin Falls as well. Click and read.

I always marveled at Twin Falls being a resettlement area. Per capita, it may be one of the biggest, though I learned on my trip here that Burlington, VT, is a major refugee destination as well.

Boise also is a large resettlement area for folks from many war-torn African nations.

On my to-read list: "The Middle of Everywhere" by Mary Pipher, in which she writes about refugee resettlement in Lincoln, Nebraska.
