This is our weekly post highlighting refugee’s stories and what it is like for them to live in America. It is important to know the stories of refugees and to better understand them before making decision on policy around them. Watch this short video of refugees telling their stories of living in America.
People that are pushing for letting in fewer refugees and for putting more restriction on refugees entering this country are always using the “fact” that refugees will hurt our economy. Not only is this not true but refugees can actually help strengthen our economy. Watch this video by Al Jazeera English to find out how refugees have done this in Europe already.
Refugee stories is weekly post we will do highlighting actual refugees’ stories and showing their humanity.
I am so glad you have chosen to look at our blog. We will try to show how America can and should be doing more to address the current global refugee crisis. That to stay true to America’s vales this is the only course of action. I live in an area were there are lost of refugees living and have gotten to see there personal side of the issue and have been moved to try to as much as I can to help improve the situation through my actions and changing other peoples opinions of refugees. I studied Persian in college and have worked recently in both Arabic and Persian studies creating a personal connection to the areas that are currently seeing the greatest refugee creation. I hope by reading this blog we are able to help you understand more about the refugees and the current crisis.
