Hundreds of refugees a year are resettled in North Texas.
Refugees are people who have fled their home country and cannot return because of persecution, or a well-founded fear of persecution, on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. Most refugees are never resettled to a third country. Less than one percent are resettled after going through an extensive 13-step vetting process. But most of all, they are people. They are fathers, mothers, sons, and daughters.
