PATERSON-They survived ISIS and years of war in their country, but it turns out, they can’t survive life in New Jersey.

According to a report in the Bergen Record newspaper, many Syrian refugees who landed in New Jersey are now seeking to find refuge elsewhere.

“Some of the Syrian families who fled their war-torn hometowns and lived as refugees in Jordan and Turkey before making their way to the United States are now on the move again,” the report states.

Families making their exodus from the Garden State claim low wages for unskilled workers, crime and high taxes as reasons they are leaving to go to states like Michigan.
