ARLINGTON, Va. (WUSA9) -- While more than half of the nation's governors are saying "no" to Syrian refugees in their states, one county in our area is actually rolling out the welcome mat.
In fact, Arlington County, Va. is offering refugees services in both Arabic and English.
Even the US Census Bureau called Arlington "the world in a zip code." One hundred different languages are spoken in Arlington and this community could soon become even more diverse, if it accepts Syrian refugees.
Arlington, Va. has long been a melting pot of cultural diversity.
"We're all people. We're the human race. We should be able to work together and get along and enjoy one another, said Arlington resident Angel Austin.
In fact, when WUSA9 stopped random people on the street for interviews, most were immigrants.
