Refugees in the Press

November 26, 2013

A recent study conducted by the Partnership for a New American Economy revealed that communities experience higher home values and a stronger manufacturing sector – among other benefits – as a result of immigrants living in their cities.

WABE Public Radio in Atlanta ran a moving piece about Iraqis who came to the U.S. through the Special Immigrant Visa program open to those who served alongside U.S. troops in Iraq. EMM’s affiliate partners at Refugee Resettlement and Immigration Services of Atlanta serve many of these incredible individuals.

And EMM’s program partners at the Center for Applied Linguistics produced a great video that introduces refugees and resettlement to a wide range of audiences.
