Story about Refugees

Jing Huang




         Until today,  there are many refugees coming to America to find their new home. The refugees have different religion, nationality, and political opinion. But they were damaged by persecution, war, or violence in their countries. They escape to other countries because they cannot or afraid to return to their hometown. War, religious and ethnic violence are the main cause of refugees leaving their countries.

       As a group of people or a community want to resettle in other countries instead of their own countries due to some negative issues they had faced, they have to go through the UN High Commissioner for Refugees to be determined if they are qualified as refugees. After being determined as refugees, the UN, U.S. Embassy or NGO will refer the refugees to the United States for resettlement. As the refugees met all the U.S. admissions criteria, the U.S. Homeland Security officer officially approve those refugees for resettlement.

       The US has long known for being a leader in resettling refugees. Mostly refugees are referred by the United Nation to move and resettle in the US.

      Back in 2015, the US planned to accept as many as 8000 refugees from Syria. This shows that the US was creating opportunity for refugee to resettle in its country.

       There are some biggest challenges facing refugees in the US. One of them is difficulty in speaking and learning English. The US is not a multilingual country so refugees have to learn English to overcome the language barrier. However learning English is difficult to refugees, it is very time-consuming and costly to take English classes.

       Securing work is also an important problem. While most refugees are happy to take whatever job is available when they first enter the country. However, finding a job, and slowly moving up the ladder, is incredibly difficult. Employers typically prefer work experience within the US and certifications outside of the US usually don’t transfer. Refugees might face difficulties in securing housing. To seek a safe environment or housing to live is not easy. Most of them are very expensive.

       Undocumented immigrants have an especially difficult time in accessing services. Largely because they are afraid of being deported. Consequently, people will avoid seeing the doctor or reaching out for services like legal guidance when they really need it.

Where Refugees end up in the US.
