I. Those refugees who move to the U.S. come from different countries. Dem. Rep. Congo has the most refugees that immigrate to the U.S. and the second most in Syria, third in Burma.

Those people most likely need to face the safety situation, such as shooting, therefore they come to the U.S. for the security insurance.

culture shock stages

II. The stages of those refugees faced The honeymoon phase (first arrive in the United States, people may have lots of goals and expectations for what will happen in your new life)

  • The culture shock phase(“As you adjust to a new culture, you may go through different periods where you feel different ways.” and this is a common phase for all people living in new cultures)

    • Helplessness

    • Thinking that everything is dirty

    • Feeling afraid

    • Anger

    • Boredom

    • Sleeping too much

III. Refugees may settle at the U.S.

They have Rights to Stay and Work in the U.S. by applying for a work permit so there will be legal to work in the U.S. The refugee may reunite with overseas family members who still left in their home country. When refugees have their own travel document, they may be left the U.S. except where they come from. Finally, after one year enters the U.S., they may apply for the green card.
