U.S. Catholic;Aug2007, Vol. 72 Issue 8, p30
The author reflects on the Iraqi refugees who are Muslims and Christians hoping to find work in a place where unemployment is already high. The U.S. invasion of Baghdad, Iraq has destroyed Saddam Hussein, the infrastructure of the nation and the fabric of daily life in households and neighborhoods. However, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait refused to admit refugees and the United Nations did not give refugee status to people who were the targets of violence in Iraq.
