US Refugee Process

Defining Terms

Most Americans don’t know Immigration Law.
So, we believe what we hear – that there are “too many” refugees coming to the US and and that the government wants to “let in everybody”**.  Recently, an actual Immigration Attorney from Ohio explained it all to a graphic designer, and together they made this great infographic.

**there’s currently 6 million refugees worldwide (according to the UN refugee agency).   The US is taking only about 1.5% of the world’s refugees – despite being the richest country in the world and the 3rd richest per captia

Once a refugee manages to get through the 18-24 months of waiting and vetting, it might be nice to actually welcome them to the US.
