Which 'Refugees' Are We Welcoming?
Resettlement in the United States has only gotten more arbitrary
Topics: Refugees and Asylum
"The United States provides refuge to persons who have been persecuted or have a well-founded fear of persecution through two programs: one for refugees (persons outside the U.S.) and one for asylees (persons in the U.S.)."
"A wide-ranging review is needed of this costly and out-of-control system. It has failed refugees, both by diverting limited resources from overseas assistance and by the sheer neglect of those resettled in the United States by their 'sponsors.' The program is rife with fraud, profitable for hundreds of 'non-profit' organizations, and is a potential channel for terrorism into American communities."
