Refugees suffer the worst ravages of war and forced migration. Driven from their homelands, many find themselves unwelcome in lands where they seek asylum. In the United States today, refugees stand on the fault lines of our political and social debates. How does the United States manage its refugee caseload? What is the application and adjudication process for refugee status? How do local resettlement offices assist refugees trying to integrate into American communities? An open discussion with audience members will follow the presentation.
