Episode 1: For The Children

April 18, 2016



There’s a thriving Arab-American community in Michigan, and the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants has resettled around 4,500 Arabic speaking refugees there since 2007, mainly from Iraq. Meet Jasem Al-Khalidi and Oudaï Al-Aamiri, and their families. The kids are doing well, but their parents must reinvent themselves, starting from the bottom up.
